Theis method facilitates and makes convenient and portable X..ray imaging ofsmall biological objects (grains, leaves, insects, etc.) almost instantly and without any wet developing processes. The key technology that makes that possible is photothermoplastic carrier (film) that is sensitive to the X-rays. Small biological object is placed into an imaging camera, exposed to an X-ray source and the image is registered on the photothermoplastic film. The development process is very simple heating the film to approx.70degrees Celsius fully develops the image, which remain stable after cooling. The camera is ready to the next job. The whole device could be made quite portable and can be used in field research. Our first experimental portable system weigh about 40 lb.
