Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Ray is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film.

Some advantages of digital X-rays includes time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also, less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.

Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability; elimination of costly film processing steps; a wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure; as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance the overall display quality of the image.
