Digital Radiographs are one of the newest X-ray techniques available to our patients. With digital radiographs, film is replaced with a flat electronic pad or sensor. The X-rays hit the pad the same way they hit the film. But instead of developing the film in a dark room, the image is electronically sent directly to a computer where the image appears on the screen. The image can then be stored on the computer or printed out. The advantages of this process is that our patients are exposed to less radiation, it is a "green" technology (no chemical waste) and efficient.
