Digital x-rays offer many benefits for both our doctor and our patients. Comfortable digital sensors allow us to capture images that are clearer and have better detail, which allows for more accurate diagnosis. Images are also immediately available for Dr. Chen to review with you. The digital images provided by digital x-rays are also easy to transfer and share with other important providers if necessary.
Digital x-rays offer less exposure to radiation than x-rays taken in the past – approximately 80% less, which amounts to about as much exposure as you get spending a day outside in the sun. There is also less harm done to the environment since there are no harsh chemicals needed for development.
