Computed Radiology (CR)
The technology used in CR started the movement into the digital era and thus replacing the conventional X-ray. There are a multitude of benefits to this upgrade – the use of consumables is nearly eliminated and the time to produce an image is drastically reduced.
Understanding Technology behind Computed Radiology (CR)
- Instead of film, an imaging receptor plate is exposed to X-ray or gamma radiation.
- The imaging plate is scanned and digitized by a reader, then erased for immediate reuse.
- The digital image is displayed on a computer monitor for evaluation with specialized software.
No dark rooms or chemicals needed.
Reduction in exposure & processing time (Image produced in 30- 120 secs).
Software based, superior ease for evaluation and reporting.
Digital information can be exchanged and archived simply.
Increase facility through put.
