A digital X-ray (digital radiography) is an advanced imaging technique that utilizes digital technology to capture X-ray images. The digital cameras on the X-ray are equipped with advanced digital X-ray sensors and a flat panel detector. This allows for the swift and precise acquisition of digital images.
Digital X-ray technology offers a significant advancement from traditional X-ray methods (conventional radiography), offering several key advantages. Digital X-rays use a digital image capture device and, therefore, eliminate the need for film and lengthy processing times while at the same time enhancing image quality.
The radiation exposure is also significantly lower. These benefits ensure patients receive the most accurate diagnoses while prioritizing their safety.
Preparing for a digital X-ray is a simple process. You may need to wear a hospital gown or specific clothing depending on the area of your body being imaged. Metal objects, such as jewelry, may need to be removed as they can interfere with the imaging process. It’s essential to inform your healthcare provider if there is any chance of pregnancy.
During the procedure, you will be positioned by a radiologic technologist, who will operate the X-ray equipment. You may be asked to hold your breath briefly while the images are captured to minimize motion and ensure clarity. The process is non-invasive, painless, and typically takes only a few minutes.
