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 capture 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.
