Digital Radiography (DR) is replacing the use of film and computed radiography. There are several benefits to this conversion.
Digital radiography (DR) is the direct conversion of transmitted X-ray photons into a digital image using an array of solid-state detectors. This improves the image quality and also provides faster results. Replacing film also reduces the need for retakes and saves on processing time.
Images are produced and are available immediately on a computer for review. This technique uses x-ray sensitive plates to capture images, and is immediately uploaded to a secure portal for review, without the use of an intermediate cassette.
DR vs CR
While both CR and DR are both efficient and can reduce mistakes and avoid repeat examinations. Digital Radiography produces higher quality images at a faster rate making it more efficient than CR images.
DR not only saves time and produces higher quality images, but DR can also save money. The need for processing is eliminated so the use of film, chemicals, processor maintenance, and filing supplies are eliminated. Since the process is electronic it is easier to share and communicate with off-site medical teams.
Digital Radiography x-rays have tested to prove up to a 50% reduction in radiation exposure. The DR x-ray imaging still provides higher quality results even with the radiation reduction.
The new path to patient safety, cost reduction, and higher quality x-ray imaging is found with Digital Radiography (DR) Digital Imaging. American Mobile Medical offers the latest technology in mobile x-ray services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
