What are the Advantages of Digital Radiography?

Digital radiography (DR) is an advanced form of x-ray inspection which produces a digital radiographic image instantly on a computer. This technique uses x-ray sensitive plates to capture data during object examination, which is immediately transferred to a computer without the use of an intermediate cassette.

Digital image enhancement and data storage

Use of analysis tool and defect recognition software

Reduced inspection time, as no chemical processing of film is required

Eliminates processing chemical, hence safe for environment

Switch to Digital Radiography – easy transitioning and improved efficiency.

Easy transitioning from conventional radiography to digital X-ray technology – for improved workflow efficiency.

The use of chemicals in traditional analog techniques is associated with occupational health hazards and unpleasant odours. The costs of conventional x-ray archives are high in terms of space, time and money. Digital radiography represents an environmentally friendly and high-quality alternative. Reduced radiation exposure for patients is a further advantage over conventional radiography.
