Medical X-ray film plays a vital role in diagnostic imaging. It is the final hard copy obtained in each investigation or examination. The film become the document/property of the hospital or patient and decides many critical issues. Improper storage and inadequate processing certainly will weaken the image quality. Hence proper understanding of X-ray film and its environment is very much essential.
The various steps involved in making the final hard copy, shall be carried out in a organized and optimal way. The persons handling the film processing, and the student community must be educated sufficiently, so that well-trained manpower may be generated, in this country.
I hope that this book may provide useful information that is required in the above field. Probably this is the first book of this nature, addressing various relevant topics collectively. I thank M/s Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers (P) Ltd, New Delhi for undertaking this publication.
I dedicate this book to my late father Mr. K Kuppusamy. Healthy comments and suggestions are invited from the readers.
