Advanced Technology : Digital Radiography

What is it?

Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film.

What are the benefits?

  • Digital radiography typically reduces radiation exposure by 75% or more.
  • Digital X-ray equipment provides image quality that can surpass traditional film, enabling earlier detection of decay and other problems that might have been missed on film.
  • Digital radiography eliminates the need for automatic film processors, taking with it the odor, and wait times.
  • Reduce the long processing time of conventional radiography to seconds.

How is it done?
