Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. This technological advancement is much more time efficient, allowing your physician to view your x-rays in a matter of seconds. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability. This also allows your x-rays to be a part of your electronic medical record.
Also, ask how these images can be saved on a disc for your own personal health records!
