Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film.
We are pleased to provide our patients with the absolute latest in diagnostic capacity through digital radiography. The previous generation of x-ray film and chemical-based film developers have been replaced with computerized digital imaging technology. This technology has provided the unique capability to capture x-rays/ images in mere seconds and display them on chair side computer monitors. Older technology averages 7-8 minutes for the older film-based format. Digital Imaging allows for unsurpassed diagnostic capability and also provides for greater interaction between Doctor and patient. The ability for patients to clearly see images and the specific areas of concern helps with their clinical understanding of proposed treatment options. Another advantage of digital imaging is that it also greatly reduces the amount of radiation compared to a conventional film-based system by as much as 85%. This advancement in technology has certainly provided a tremendous advantage for both patients and doctors.
