Homemade X-ray photography

    Those pictures were made using the anode voltage of only 40kV and current 200uA, ie anode power only 8W. X-ray cassettes described in previous article were used, serving as a fluoroscope. First, cassete in its original condition was used (all photos except for the first two), then one of the screens was took out from the cartridge kodak. It seems that it is better when X-ray radiation does not pass cartridge body and goes directly on the screen :). In this way first 2 photos where photographed and the brightness is visibly better. The shielding effectiveness is carefully checked. The supply is remote controlled. The HV is set low to make the radiation easy to shield.

WARNING!
This site doesn't serve as a guide! it is just a curiosity, not intended for reproduction. For this reason, I don't describe all safety precautions here. X-ray radiation is very dangerous ionizing radiation. Passes more or less through all materials, it cannot be completely shield. Exposure can cause cancer, leukemia, radiation sickness, tumours and other fatal diseases and infertility or mutation of offspring. The device operates with a very high voltage. Do not try this in any case ! If you, despite warnings, decided to implement it, I do not take any responsibility for your damage - everything you do at your own risk.
