Definition : Cassettes designed for holding a radiographic image receptor (e.g., an x-ray film, a phosphor image storage plate) during exposure to radiation by an x-ray (radiography) diagnostic unit. The cassettes are usually placed in an x-ray cassette holder in the radiography unit. These devices typically consist of a metal or plastic housing with appropriate inserts to facilitate transportation of the film or image plate and to protect the cassette and its contents from environmental light. Dedicated cassettes are typically available for use with radiography film units/systems or with computed radiography systems.
