The following slides describe the processing
and duplicating of x-ray films and quality
control in dental radiography.
In navigating through the slides, you should click
on the left mouse button when you see the
mouse holding an x-ray tubehead or you are
done reading a slide. Hitting \u201cEnter\u201d or \u201cPage
Down\u201d will also work. To go back to the previous
slide, hit \u201cbackspace\u201d or \u201cpage up\u201d.
After the films are exposed to radiation, they need to
be processed in order to see the information on the
film. This processing is done using special
chemicals and takes place in a darkroom. The
darkroom should have the following attributes:
crystals are sensitive to both x-rays and light, the
area where films are processed must be completely
dark, except for a safelight (see next slide).
Safelights are used in the darkroom to provide
adequate light so that you can see what you are
doing when you unwrap films for processing.
The safelights have special filters that produce
light that does not expose the film.
