Till now X-rays are the most widely used radiology technique used in the medical field. Using X-ray machines includes X-ray films which contains silver in a huge amount. A latent image is formed on the film by the exposure of x-rays to the films and the film has to be further processed and developed for getting the latent image. During development process most of the silver are released into the chemicals used for processing and the silver gets wasted if not properly recycled from the container. Also, once the silver has been properly recycled from the processing chemicals, the dry mass of plastic remains as left over.
