Digital X-Ray

A Digital X-Ray facility provides immediate processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. This allows applications in all routine X-rays as well as specialized imaging studies like IVP. A Digital X-Ray facility provides images to be viewed on-screen within minutes. A radiologist typically views and interprets the results.

You will be required to remove all jewelry and wear a gown provided at our centre during the x-ray examination because metal and certain clothing can obscure the images and require repeat studies.

The benefits of digital X-Ray are:

  • X-ray equipment is relatively inexpensive and widely available in emergency rooms, physician offices, ambulatory care centers, nursing homes and other locations, making it convenient for both patient and physicians.
  • Because x-ray imaging is fast and easy, it is particularly useful in emergency diagnosis and treatment.
  • No radiation remains in a patient’s body after an x-ray examination.

Women should always inform their physicians or x-ray technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.
