I used to use the lead-lined film bags but no more. If they're in your
checked baggage, they may be subjected to stronger x-rays than normal in
order to see what's inside, or your carefully packed bag unceremoniously
opened and rifled while they see what the heck that opaque blob is. If
you have them in your carry-on you will probably be pulled aside at the
security checkpoint and forced to watch while they unceremoniously open
and rifle your carefully packed baggage.
