Digital x-rays have several advantages over traditional radiography. Digital technology exposes patients to as much as 80-90% less radiation, and it produces images instantly as opposed to requiring film to develop. It is also safer for our staff and the environment, because we don’t need to handle dangerous chemicals to expose film. With digital x-ray technology, we can view the clear, detailed images on a computer monitor with you. Then, the images can be easily stored, saved, or sent to a specialist or insurance company if needed.
