    I'm sure hospitals have x-ray labs that have more archival processes (lots of x-rays today are digital), but some places (like urgent care) need fast, simple processing.
    Yes, I agree, but I believe modern x-rays will still last. The local hospitals here are all digital - film x-rays are now the domain of veterinarians.

    They will last BECAUSE they are digital and part of a patent's permanent digital record that can be shared with the various doctors treating a patent.


    Ag based x-rays are far too valuable as Ag scrap to sit in filing cabinets for years.

    Hmm, I don't know the exact chemical makeup but the xray of my skull I have at home seems to be on regular polyester base.

    In the begin substituting fxing & washing for stabilisating was popular (2 step processing).
    Then washing was re-introduced (4 step processing). Miraculous fast...

    Keep in mind that most uses (like graphic arts) did not need really archival results.
