Digital X-Ray

A digital x-ray employs a digital x-ray sensor, as opposed to a traditional photographic film to produce x-ray images of the human anatomy. The advantage of using a digital x-ray sensor is that the time taken to process the images is vastly reduced and that the images can be digitally enhanced to improve the final output quality.

Advantages of a Digital X-ray can be enumerated as below:

  • Less radiation exposure
  • Immediate image preview & correction
  • Elimination of film processing step
  • Digital enhancement for improved viewing
  • Enhance overall quality of the image
