The Advantages of Digital X-ray

Digital radiography has revolutionized diagnostic capabilities, offering higher contrast images with significantly less x-ray exposure for both patients and staff. This technology reduces the need for retakes due to incorrect settings, as images can be digitally manipulated, further minimizing radiation exposure. Additionally, digital radiography is much more environmentally friendly, eliminating the need for film and harmful chemicals, thereby reducing medical waste and environmental impact.

Side-by-side x-ray images of a canine skull in enlarged view and inverted view

The above side-by-side images of a canine skull were taken with our digital radiography system and have been opened in our software program where it can easily be manipulated. On the left and outlined in red, the magnifying tool is being used, enlarging the area to 1.5x its original size. On the right, the image colours are inverted, allowing for better visualization of some bone structures.
