Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
Digital Radiography (DR) or (DX) is essentially filmless X-ray image capture. In place of X-ray film, a digital image capture device is used to record the X-ray image and make it available as a digital file that can be presented for interpretation and saved as part of the patient's medical record. The advantages of DR over film include immediate image preview and availability, a wider dynamic range which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image. The largest motivator for healthcare facilities to adopt DR is its potential to reduce costs associated with processing, managing and storing films. Typically there are two variants of digital image capture devices. These devices include Flat Panel detectors (FPDs), and High Density Line Scan Solid State detectors.
Our new DR offering is advanced, effective, and quick. Enhance your workflow with superior image quality.The new line of DR solutions use integrated flat panel detectors to provide a superior imaging experience over standard analog film or CR. DR offers advanced image quality and full DICOM functionality allowing for the most efficient workflow. The DR solution (powered by CMT's SmartRAD) offers an intuitive user-friendly console with state-of-the-art connectivity. DICOM-compatibility allows the new DR to work seamlessly with the tested Web-based Opal-RAD PACS. X-ray parameters for exposure, review, post-processing operations and filming can be controlled from a single console.
