X-rays are nuclear emissions having high energy that has the capacity of passing through your tissues and leave an image on the X-ray film. Few emissions can pass through the dense tissues like the bones and many emissions can pass through the soft tissues for darkening the x-ray film. This leads to a contrast image- the picture of your inner parts of the body as seen on the film is the dark areas are less dense whereas the light areas possess dense tissues.

X-rays are taken by the radiology technologist and nonradioactive materials are administered in the bloodstream of the patient for diagnosis. The X-ray films are produced by the radiographers. They produce films of the different parts of the body that is helpful for diagnosing the medical problems.

The X-ray film is placed under the part of the individual’s body that is to be examined and exposed. Then the film is removed and developed. The film is checked for its quality and then send to the radiologist for interpreting. The X-ray films are very valuable for seeing the necessary information about a particular person. The individual bones of the legs, wrist and hand are quite different in their forms from person to person. So these x-ray films serve as a valuable aid to establish personal identification both of the living as well as of the dead.

X-ray diffraction films can generate high resolution intensity profiles with the help of a computer image analysis and a desktop scanner. Nowadays, the x-ray films are available with a polyester base that gives the film dimensional stability as well as helps in drying quickly after the process of development. But, today there are a number of variations found due to the chemical processing of the x-ray film. These variations may lead to:

* Loss in the quality of the image
* Environmental contamination
* The image availability can be delayed
* Decreased productivity
* Unnecessary exposure of the patient to radiations and
* Reduction in the profitability of the imaging center.

The above mentioned variables can be reduced by controlling the processing accuracy as well as the processing consistency.
