Would real x-ray goggles be good for anything other than giving people cancer?

How about x-ray google goggles? They can give you cancer and then search for a cure online.

Cancer in the people you look at you mean? CCD goggles (like for IR) and a lead suit would leave the user perfectly safe.

Yeah, that’s what I meant. When I first had the thought I was guessing that the backscattered intensity would be too small for imaging and so x-ray goggles would be totally useless as goggles. But not surprisingly I’m wrong and people do generate impressive images by detecting backscattered x-rays. They’re even talking about using this technology in airports so that security personal can make freaky pornography after-hours.
