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
