As a film camera designer/user, I got involved with controversy over fogging of 
film by airport XRays.  Since XRays are used in mfg of digital circuits, my 
question is can Airport XRays cause changes in the circuits, or can it cause 
changes in the stored information in memory modules.  With film, the damage was 
slight, but cumulative.   I have found no infor source on this topic.  Question 
is for personal info, not commercial.
