RADD 2501 Xrays…. Well, you see, this heterogeneous invisible beam has been passed through body tissues with different absorption characteristics in the region of clinical interest of your chiropractor, exciting crystals of rare earth salts contained in two screens between which is sandwiched a polyester film coated, on each side, with a thin layer of presensitized silver halide crystals. These activated crystals will be converted to metallic silver in the chemical processing of the film over a period of ninety seconds at 34.5 degrees Celsius or at about 94 degrees Fahrenheit.
