A Digital X-Ray facility provides immediate processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. This allows applications in all routine X-rays as well as specialized imaging studies like IVP. A Digital X-Ray facility provides images to be viewed on-screen within minutes. A radiologist typically views and interprets the results.
The benefits of digital X-Ray are:
Ultrasound imaging is extremely safe and does not use any ionizing radiation. It allows the doctor to see inside the uterus and provides much information about the pregnancy.
- X-ray equipment is relatively inexpensive and widely available in emergency rooms, physician offices, ambulatory care centers, nursing homes and other locations, making it convenient for both patient and physicians.
- Because x-ray imaging is fast and easy, it is particularly useful in emergency diagnosis and treatment.
- No radiation remains in a patient’s body after an x-ray examination.
