Andrew Murphy et al.

General radiography, also known as plain film radiography. Is the specialty within medical imaging that utilized projectional radiography to examine anatomy. It is often referred to as simply ‘x-ray’ within medical imaging departments. Due to the differences in pediatric projectional radiography and adult projectional radiography, the sections are clearly separated. Although the principles remain similar - practices vary significantly between the two.
