Digital X-ray

Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, which uses digital X-ray sensors instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include less radiation is used to produce an image when compared to plain film radiography. Also, time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. 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 overall display quality of the image
