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, because the results are instantaneous, giving the technician the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. In addition, digital radiography uses less radiation than conventional x-rays.
Instead of x-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives you the advantages of immediate image availability, elimination of costly film processing steps, wider dynamic range, and the ability to apply special image processing techniques to enhance the overall display of the image.
