How to use Minox 8x11 to keep a microfiche of your own X-ray records.

Last time my physio therapist wanted to see my X-ray records. I went to my radiologist and borrow my X-ray records, which were kept altogether in a large brown envelop. I brought it home. The therapist appointment was several days away.
I thought, why not take a copy of all my X-ray records with my Minox ?
- Camera: Minox C
- Film: Techpan
- Lighting: Hold X ray record against window.
Set distance: Frame the picture, such that it covers slightly larger then the X-ray film. Then use Minox chain to set distance.
- Shutter: set at Automatic.
After development, the negative strip contains a (positive ) micro -records of my X-rays.
This is another application of Minox.

How did the negs turn out? Can you blow them up into anything useable? Do you happen to know a doctor, personally, that you can get to evaluate the negative?
Interesting expiriment in any case.

Sean, I have'nt enlarge any of the X ray negative yet. In the event of the original X ray record folder is lost, then I may think about enlarge the negative into 8x10" sheet film.
At this moment, it is rather as a microfiche experiment, for fun than for practical use :)
