If the friend who bought them for you carried them through security, they 
should be fine. The x-ray machines for hand 
luggage aren't that powerful and ISO 100 isn't very sensitive.

If it went through as checked baggage, it could easily be affected. Those 
machines have to see through great thicknesses 
of stuff, and ramp up the power until they can see everything.
