Digital radiography affords multiple advantages over the conventional film method. Some of these benefits include:
A higher quality of patient care – Many patients today are concerned about exposure to radiation. Digital X-Rays typically decrease radiation exposure by 75% or more.
Image enhancement – Digital X-ray systems let us control the exposure of each image in real time; meaning we can make the images darker or lighter on demand. We can also enlarge images, and make enhancements to color. These features enhance our ability to detect disease.
Image quality – Clarity and detail are more important than ever before. Digital X-ray equipment provides image quality that surpasses traditional film, bringing out tiny fractures and imperfections that could be missed on film.
