Digital Radiology (DR)
As we continue to see vast improvements in the field of radiology, digital upgrades are becoming a necessity. When compared to film and CR, there are a multitude of benefits– the use of consumables is nearly eliminated and the time to produce an image is drastically reduced.
Understanding Technology behind Digital Radiology (DR)
- An imaging receptor plate known as the flat panel detector is exposed to Xray or gamma radiation.
- Digital sensors within the plate capture the image and immediately transmit.
- Image is displayed instantly on a computer monitor evaluation with specialized software.
Greater image quality and faster results. (Image produced in 5 secs)
Accurate detectability of smaller defects.
Increase facility through put.
80% less radiation than traditional.
New technology also offers storage possibilities of the data and images.
Possibility of wireless transfer of data.
