The technique of x-ray fluorescence analysis has been used to make relative and absolute measurements of the amount of silver contained in x-ray films. These measurements are useful in evaluation of imaging properties such as speed and contrast and also in financial considerations associated with film costs and silver reclamation. The use of this technique will be described here and results will be presented from measurements on representative film samples. An attempt to apply the same method to analysis of the efficiency of spent fixer recovery systems is underway.
