In brief: Cost of x-rays
It is not just the cost of the "materials" but it involved "time" for the doctor and the staff to look up the patient record, duplicate them, package them, mail, fax or email them as requested.
Your cost to "duplicate" these records doesn't really cover the cost of doing this.

In brief: Varies
A digital radiograph can be re-printed.
An analog radiograph requires a device that can duplicate the original, duplicating film, x-ray processor, and the time and expense of the person duplicating the film in the office. The cost of supplies, and labor costs can vary significantly.

In brief: Time
If the dental office still uses film the costs will include the duplicate film and paying staff to take the time to do so.
If the duplicates are to be mailed the n you will have to add in postage. These costs vary from office to office. If the office uses digital xrays then they can be emailed, printed, or downloaded to a cd for minimal costs.

In brief: Minimal
Duplicating digital x-rays is very inexpensive.
Dupicating film x-rays would much higher.
