How about an icon for an X-ray film (an icon of an X-ray of a hip, for example).

Have any images you like for this? I'm all for more healthcare-related icons.

@gsmethells

You mean a PNG of an actual X-ray to base it off of?

@gsmethells

An anonymous image of a pelvis.

I envision x-ray with a broken bone like this:

My two cents

@gsmethells

I kinda like the first (red) one. The internal white part looks like it would make a really cool glyph. And it gets the idea across with a limited number of shapes.

@antonellopasella

are you working on this icon? may I PR my contribution?

@gsmethells

Curious as to whether this might make the cut one day? I'm up for tipping with Gift Cards. :)

@gsmethells

May I nudge this towards being labeled as "medical icons"?

I've tagged it as a medical icon which will increase its chances of getting into 4.0.

@gsmethells

Cool.

However it looks too complex for a small icon. Few months ago I found a medical icons set and they were this complex and detailed... and totally useless in small sizes.

@hwsoderlund

What about the radiation symbol?

EDIT: I see now that there is already a request for the radiation symbol.
#255

@gsmethells

I would suggest a zoomed in view of an X-ray-ed knee. Side-view. Basically, just the bottom of the femur and the top of the tibia. Maybe the knee cap. The knee is bent. My two cents.

@nsimeonov

@gsmethells I like this - seems simple enough, however if shrinked to a 32x32 pixels icon it is still unrecognizable. The radiation symbol is perfectly fine, but I wouldn't use it for medical X-Ray.

... just thinking out loud

@nsimeonov

This one is great:

This one too:

@gsmethells

I like @nsimeonov's suggestion on Feb 20 with the lateral view of a knee.

@gsmethells

Another option: use a Caduceus with a rectangle border and a dog-eared page corner.

caduceus

@gsmethells

Or use a Staff of Asclepius symbol instead of a Caduceus symbol. Actually, either of those symbols would be great without a border, too, since they are medical and very general.
