Section I. INTRODUCTION
Figure 1-1 illustrates the complete cycle of production, utilization and
safekeeping of radiographs. Two other subcourses, MD0950, Fundamentals of X-Ray
Physics, and MD0952, Principles of Radiographic Exposure, cover steps 1 through 4
and steps 6 through 8, respectively. This subcourse is concerned with step 5 and
steps 9 through 15. They cover three major areas of discussion:
a. The chemistry of x-ray film and the chemistry of film processing (Lesson 1).
b. The processing room, its facilities and its equipment (Lesson 2).
c. The activities involved in the processing of x-ray film (Lessons 3 and 4).
