    As long as you can develop it before 1946, it looks okay!

    Isn't fluorography another word for x-ray? Or something similar if I remember correctly (which is hardly ever the case!)

    I assume it was used for photographing X-ray luminescent screens in medical examinations.

    In a way it was the intensifyer-foil system took apart:

    Film (for image storage) and foil (for sensing X-rays) were not sandwitched in a filmholder, but the screen was freely visible and the film was exposed by using a camera (with high speed lens).
    This enabled the physician to use the foil (in this case stiff screen) as a monitor.
    Even after omitting direct vision of the screen, such screen photography was more economic than exposing sheets in the 1/1 scale, allowing for mass-screening.


    Most probably that film was specially sensitized for the radiation of that screen.

    Though I'm a bit surprised by the film having had to be stored in refrigerator.
