Digital Radiography (DR)

What is DR?

Digital Radiography (DR) is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. This technology bypasses chemical processing and affords the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. DR technology minimizes overhead by improving workflow and increasing productivity. Patient satisfaction scores increase with decreased patient wait and scan times, and physician satisfaction increases with better image quality. More importantly, both patients and employees benefit from less radiation exposure.

What is the right technology?

There are several factors to consider when choosing Digital Radiography (DR) technology. Is DR appropriate for your facility? Should you choose a flat panel detector or a charge-coupled device (CCD) camera? Is indirect detection or direct detection better for efficiency optimization?
