X-Rays in Developing Countries

Before the advent of digital technology, silver-halide X-rays set the standard. Nowadays, both are used but silver remains a popular choice for its extreme accuracy and cost effectiveness. This is particularly true for doctors and medical experts in developing countries, where digital X-ray technology may not be available or may be too costly. By making X-rays available to all, silver occupies an important humanitarian role in global healthcare. It is quite amazing, too, that the relatively simple technology behind silver-halide X-rays continues to provide doctors with such accurate results.
