At the Tomsk synchrotron measurements of X-ray yield for the energies ω = 29-53 keV emitted in the forward direction from a perfect silicon crystal bombarded by 500-MeV relativistic electrons have been carried out. The contribution of parametric X-ray radiation (PXR) at a small angle near the velocity direction of electrons has not been observed. The possible maximum value of this radiation is smaller than 2% of the total intensity of bremsstrahlung and transition radiation.
