Digital x-rays are a more streamlined way of taking radiographs. Like traditional x-rays, digital versions provide an in-depth view of the structures of the body, helping chiropractors detect complications and develop effective modes of treatment.
Requiring less radiation and no film to process, digital x-rays have become the standard for body imaging. These systems produce instant digital images that can easily be enhanced and enlarged for a more accurate diagnosis. The images are captured, stored, and even transmitted via in-office computers. In fact, chiropractors can easily print or email copies of x-rays in just seconds.
Digital x-rays make for a better and more efficient patient experience. Office visits are faster, patients are exposed to less radiation, and radiographs can be sent to a specialist for review in a fraction of the time necessary for traditional film x-rays.
