Autoradiography
#1
An autoradiograph is a type image produced on special x-ray film by radiation emitted from the object being looked at.

Attached is a photo of some dandelion leaves that I processed.

The image is produced by the energy transferred by the radiation from the sample to the film.

You can see where radioactive materials collect inside of the sample as well.

I've been wanting to try this for a few yers now, but the cost of the film has prevented me from trying. Can you give details on how the film is developed (what is needed to develop the film) and also if you can make dose assessments based on the developed film? I'm just wondering if the film can tell you more than 'there was radioactive contamination in this area'.
