    The current state-of-the-art security scanners use dual or multi energy photons from 5keV to 250keV to simultaneously determine composition as well as visual structure. If you have metal in your luggage, it will automatically go to high power with a narrow sweep width (on the order of 1-2mm). Chest x-rays use beam energies around 120keV. If you manage to wake up one these scanners so they jump to 250keV, you might even screw up sensitized photo paper.

    Not all checked in luggage is scanned. My MIL just brought over like 30 rolls of black and white I left at their place in NZ and where did she put them? Yep. Checked luggage. Haven't had a chance to even test some, but I'm not terribly worried.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.
