Digital X-Ray

Digital x-ray uses ionizing radiation to produce all images. It directly captures the image to the computer for immediate viewing.

Digital x-rays have become an easy way for our orthopedists to obtain diagnostic information which aids in a quicker diagnosis of injuries to your bones and joints. They can also help guide procedures. Digital x-rays have become safer, more effective and can be copied to a CD to bring to other physicians, if needed.

Digital x-rays:

  • Help determine whether a bone is dislocated or fractured
  • Evaluate joint injuries
  • Diagnose and monitor the progression of degenerative conditions (i.e. arthritis and osteoporosis)
  • Allow many images to be viewed immediately
  • Reduce the need of repeating x-rays
Digital x-ray has replaced x-ray film because it is faster and more efficient.
