Yes, why not?  It's a bit old-fashioned, that's all.  There is nothing ambiguous, or misleading, about it.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] A question of semantics

One of our trainers referred to 'x-radiation'. I understand what he means, but have not seen it called antyhing other than x-rays or 'fluorescent radiation' in my manuals from Cember Knoll, etc.... Is this a legitimate word to use in training?
