However there has been a near collapse in the use of film for television and medical uses, i.e. xrays. Kodak's restructuring and emergence as an inkjet copier company is a sadly, all too loud voice of film's demise. Laboratories are feeling the heat as well with a fraction of the throughput from the mid 90's and subsequent industry consolidation.
