Digital X-Rays

Digital radiographs (x-rays) are one of the newest techniques available. Digital radiographs use a flat plastic electronic sensor in place of film. The rays produced use 70% less radiation than traditional x-ray films. The rays hit the sensor in the same way they hit the film, but instead of developing the film in a dark room, the image is electronically sent directly to a computer. The image appears on the screen in a matter of seconds. The image can be stored on the computer or printed out. One of the great advantages of this process is that radiographs can be digitally enhanced, enlarged, and compared side by side to past x-rays for state-of-the-art diagnostic evaluation.
