Direct Digital X Ray - Philips Digital

Direct Digital Radiography is a form of x-ray imaging where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. The X-ray image captured is available as a digital file and can be viewed immediately and stored on our PACS (Picture Archiving Communication System) as part of the patient's medical record.

Direct Digital Radiography has the ability for special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image for ease of interpretation and reporting. Further advantages are that less radiation is used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography, and from an environmental perspective there is no chemical processing of film.

We print a set of films for your personal records.
