A special photographic film with a sensitive emulsion layer that blackens in response to the light from intensifying screens. The emulsion has silver halide crystals immersed in gelatin. Single-emulsion film has the emulsion on one side of the cellulose base. It is used for digital, mammographic, and extremity imaging, in which high detail is necessary. Duplitized film has the emulsion on both sides of the cellulose base. It is used for general-purpose radiological studies.
