HIPAA Breaches via Stolen X-Rays: Old x-ray films are valuable because they contain silver, and thieves have figured that out.  This is just the latest in a series of x-ray thefts.  Sort of like laptop theft, the value to the thief is definitely NOT the PHI included in the x-ray; however, it's still a reportable HIPAA breach in most cases.
