Because of this fre haz­ an effort to produce a flm that was "easier" ard a new "safety base" flm was urgently to look at, causing less eyestrain. The slightly thinner polyester base has handling properties approximately equal to those of the thicker acetate. Therefore, a thin layer of adhesive sub­ stance is applied to the base to ensure per­ fect union between base and emulsion. Emulsion The two most important ingredients of a photographic emulsion are gelatin and silver halide. The exact composition of the various emulsions is a closely guarded in­ dustrial secret. Most x-ray flm is made for use with intensifying screens, and has emulsion coated on both sides of the base. Emulsion thickness varies with flm type, Figure 10-2 Wrinkled emulsion resulting *Dacron and Cronex are trademarks of E. A thicker emulsion would not be useful be­ cause of the inability of light to penetrate to the deeper layers. Photographic gelatin for x-ray film is made from bone, mostly cattle bone from India and Argentina. It keeps the silver hal­ ide grains well dispersed and prevents the clumping of grains. Processing (developing and fxing) solutions can penetrate gelatin rapidly without destroying its strength or permanence, and gelatin is available in a reasonably large quantity and uniform quality. The hal­ ide in medical x-ray film is about 90 to 99% silver bromide and about 1 to 10% silver iodide (the presence of Agi produces an emulsion of much higher sensitivity than a pure AgBr emulsion). The silver iodo­ Figure 10-3 The silver iodobromide crystal lattice bromide crystals are precipitated and emulsifed in the gelatin under exacting conditions of concentration and tempera­ ture, as well as the sequence and the rate emulsions.

A point The silver halide in a photographic defect consists of a silver ion that has emulsion is in the form of small crystals moved out of its normal position in the suspended in the gelatin. The crystal is crystal lattice; these interstitial silver ions formed from ions of silver (Ag+), ions of may move in the crystal (Fig. A dis­ bromine (Br-), and ions of iodine (I-) ar­ location is a line imperfection in the crystal, ranged in a cubic lattice (Fig. These and may be thought of as a brick wall that grains, or crystals, in a medical x-ray film contains one row in which the bricks are emulsion are small but still relatively large not the same size as all the other bricks, compared to fne-grain photographic thus causing a strain in the wall structure.
