A light table is a viewing device that is used to review photographic film or artwork placed on top of it. A horizontal form of a lightbox, it provides even illumination of the subject from below through a translucent cover and fluorescent lights that emit little heat. They can also be found mounted on the walls of hospitals and medical offices to review X-ray images.
