Digital X-ray, also known as digital radiography, is a medical imaging technique that uses digital technology to capture and process X-ray images. It is an advanced version of traditional X-ray imaging that uses film to capture the images. In digital X-ray, the X-ray beam is directed at the part of the body being examined, and the resulting image is captured using a digital detector that converts the X-ray energy into an electronic signal. The signal is then processed by a computer to create a high-quality digital image that can be viewed on a computer screen.
Digital X-rays offer several advantages over traditional X-ray imaging, including lower radiation exposure, faster image processing times, and the ability to adjust the image contrast and brightness to enhance detail. Additionally, digital X-rays can be easily stored and shared electronically, making them more convenient for both patients and healthcare providers. Digital X-ray imaging is commonly used to diagnose a variety of medical conditions, including bone fractures, lung infections, dental problems, and digestive disorders.
