X-Ray Imaging

Digital Radiography is a form of Radiography that uses x-ray sensitive plates to directly capture data during the patient’s examination, immediately transferring it to a computer system without the use and an intermediate cassette.

 

Digital x-ray tends to be safer for the patient because it requires less radiation than traditional /regular x-ray so exposure to radiation is reduced by up to 70%. Also, because the image is produced almost instantly, the need for ‘retakes’ is less often requiring less exposure and reducing the amount of radiation exposure for both patient and staff.

 

X-rays are used to check for fractures in bones, but can also detect certain masses in tissues, fluid and other masses in the lungs (like pneumonia), calcifications, foreign objects, dental issues and a wide variety of other uses.
