The analogy between photography and X-ray images are reflected both in the public ideas of realistic and exact representations of reality and in what may appear to be quite the opposite: the experience of both the photographic and the X-ray image as a fascinating display of life, of the ghost as spectacle, of something haunting. Like photography, X-ray imaging may in other words be seen as a technique of visualization that represents a mixture of different modes of looking. X-rays were believed to be a sort of super-photography that could prove the existence of immaterial substances, the materiality of things heretofore unseen. Radiographic identification markers are a legally binding form of identification used for radiographic examinations. The objective here is to give a definitive and reliable marker in the form of a negative that can be superimposed on an x-ray film and help finding the true identity of the patient. Non-dental features including race and gender can be used for identification.
