Why Digital X-Ray’s Are Superior
Digital X-rays capture high resolution detail and significantly more accurate images compared to traditional film x-rays. This technology provides immediate images to your Doctor so they can begin the diagnosis phase of your treatment with the highest quality visual resources possible.
If your health care professional explains why it is medically needed, then don’t refuse an X-ray. The risk of not having a needed X-ray is greater than the small risk from radiation.
An x-ray is an image created on photographic film or electronically on a digital system to diagnose illnesses and injuries. During this type of medical imaging procedure, an x-ray machine is used to take pictures of the inside of the body. The x-rays pass through various parts of the body to produce images of tissues, organs, and bones.
Digital X-Ray Systems
Digital radiography (DR) is an advanced form of x-ray inspection which produces a digital radiographic image instantly on a computer. This technique uses x-ray sensitive plates to capture data during object examination, which is immediately transferred to a computer without the use of an intermediate cassette.
