The conventional radiographic viewing boxes in hospitals and diagnostic centers has a common disadvantage in which they are mostly used with electric power supply and in the event of power failure it becomes impossible to use which is a big cause for concern. This study is aimed therefore at seeking to address this disadvantage by improving on the design of a radiographic viewing box with an alternative source of power. A metallic sheet casing and a perplex screen were used. The device was able to be powered solely with a rechargeable battery. The result obtained from the testing operation of the locally fabricated illuminator viewing box indicates that the X-ray film viewing box was able to be powered using a 3.7V battery. In conclusion, this illuminator box is a technological improvement on the conventional X-ray viewing box and will greatly assist in eliminating the challenge of power failure especially in rural areas where hospitals do not have regular power supply.
