radiographic film, air bubbles on,
radiographic film sizes,
n nonscreen films (e.g., No. 0, 22 × 35 mm; No. 1, 24 × 40 mm, No. 2, 31 × 41 mm; No. 3, 27 × 54 mm; and No. 4, 57 × 76 mm) or (e.g., 5 × 7 in, 5 × 12 in, and 8 × 10 in) used to produce radiographic images.
radiographic film storage methods,
n an appropriate method of safekeeping to maintain the integrity of the materials (e.g., the placement of items in regions that will prevent exposure to radiation, heat, vapors from chemical substances, and moisture), as well as the creation of a filing system that ensures the oldest product is used first.
radiographic tube,
n a vacuum tube containing electrodes that accelerate electrons and direct them to a metal anode where their impact produces a radiograph.
