Digital Radiography (X-ray)
Digital radiography images can be completed more quickly than is possible with traditional film radiography and require fewer repeats, which lowers the possibility of you receiving unnecessary radiation exposure.
Exams utilizing digital radiography take approximately half the time as conventional film radiography:
- Chest x-rays that used to take 5 minutes now take about 2 minutes
- Spinal x-rays that used to take 30-45 minutes are now done in 20 minutes
Most importantly, digital radiography reduces the need for repeats, which in turn lowers the possibility of unnecessary radiation exposure to patients.
