Any medium or device by which the various levels of energy of radiation can be captured, which after suitable processing or manipulation would create a manifest image is called an image receptor. An image receptor may be a radiographic film and cassette, a phosphorescent screen (used in fluoroscopy or computed radiography), or a special detector placed in a table or upright bucky diaphragm (used in direct digital radiography). Radiographic film still remains a widely used image receptor.
