Digital Xray

Digital Xray (Computed Radiography) With Facilities For Contrast Studies

Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.

Digital Radiography (DR) or (DX) is essentially filmless X-ray image capture. In place of X-ray film, a digital image capturing device is used to record the X-ray image and make it available as a digital file that can be presented for interpretation and saved as part of the patient’s medical record. The advantages of DR over film include immediate image preview and availability, 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 of the image.

We take pride in delivering the highest quality medical care to our patients with our, state-of-the-art Digital Radiography systems.

Today, the digital radiography (DR) technology has transformed X-ray imaging. Medicare Diagnostic Center uses the CR 30-X Digital X-ray — a new generation CR reader from Agfa with high-resolution cassettes; in combination with the Heliophos D X-ray system from Siemens, which yields high-resolution digital X-ray images.

What are the advantages of Digital X-rays?

The largest benefit of digital x-rays is the ability to computer-enhance the images, making them larger, clearer, or higher contrast at will.
