= annotation - select to reveal
  1. A conventional cassette is a light-proof box; hinged at one side .
  2. The box is contained within a steel frame with a radio-lucent front.
  3. There are two intensifying screens between which the film is sandwiched.
  4. The screens are kept in close apposition with the film by sprung felt pads.
  5. The back of the cassette is steel lined with lead to prevent any scattered radiation from the table top passing through and exposing the film.
