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.
Advantages of Digital X-ray
Digital radiography provides so many advantages over conventional film that it’s easy to see why practices are making the transition to digital dental X-ray systems in waves. In addition, your patients expect to find modern technology at our practice.
Higher quality of care
Digital radiography typically reduces radiation exposure by 75% or more.
X-ray image enhancement
Digital X-ray systems let us control the exposure of each image in real time, so we can make images darker or lighter on demand. We can also enlarge images, make enhancements to color and superimpose textures.
These features improve our ability to detect disease and its current state. They also provide immediate visuals for compelling patient education. All this adds up to faster diagnosis and greater treatment plan acceptance.
Enhanced X-ray image quality
Fewer files cluttering office space
Filing, organizing and storing paper charts can be a real chore. With digital X-ray equipment, we eliminate the need to file and store hard-copy radiographic images.
No chemical developers
Nobody likes dealing with harmful developing chemicals and fixing solutions. Digital radiography eliminates the need for automatic film processors, taking with it the odor, wait times and space they require.
Time and productivity savings
Reduce the long processing time of conventional radiography to seconds. X-ray images are instantly stored and ready to view on our computer.
