My two cents worth.
I have been to a lot of training courses for non-technical responders.
HPs, in my opinion tend to get wrapped around the axle, so to speak,
about precise terms.
I get annoyed when a CHP lectures to emergency responders, radiation
workers, etc. about, for example, the difference between a rad and
Roentgen, because the students don't care, don't need to know, and, most
importantly won't remember.
The regulators don't care generally, and for most industrial and
emergency responders purposes, a distinction without a difference.
So likewise, xray, x-ray, photon, x-radiation, etc., it does not matter
in 'industrial' training.
Its like arguing over radiological health, radiation health, or health
