Digital Radiography

Benefits of Digital Radiography

  • The image is processed and available for view immediately processed, unlike analog films which takes time to develop.

  • Much Less radiation is needed to produce the same quality image as the analog films (digital X-rays give 70% less exposure to radiation than conventional X-rays).

  • Digital radiography produces larger images with better contrast ( 256 shades of grey versus 16-25 ), that can be digitally enhanced after processing which makes detecting cavities and other dental conditions much easier.

  • Digital radiography is more environmentally friendly.
