More about digital X-ray
Traditional X-ray imaging uses traditional photographic film, in turn, digital X-ray imaging uses a digital detector system. During a digital X-ray examination, a specific area of the patient’s body is irradiated with X-rays. The incoming X-rays are processed by a digital detector, which converts the received signals into computer images. It is important to note that this system is much more sensitive than the traditional X-ray technology, therefore, the patient receives a lower dose of radiation during the examination. Digital radiography provides an opportunity for the patient to receive detailed information on the health state condition in a fast and efficient manner.
