WHAT IS A DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHY?
Digital X-ray or digital radiography is a modern type of X-ray that uses digital sensors instead of photographic film, as in traditional X-rays. The captured image is instantly converted to digital data in real time and is available for viewing within seconds. The penetration of digital X-rays and high-quality images make them superior to traditional X-rays in terms of visualization of the smallest anatomical details on teeth, bones and soft tissues. There are several key advantages of digital X-ray compared to other options:
- Clarity – digital X-rays produce high quality images in which the dentist or doctor can very accurately observe the scanned part of the body.
- Real-time exposure allows you to adjust the brightness of the image as needed to see more clearly certain details of the scanned structures.
- Reduced radiation exposure, not only does digital X-ray produce high-resolution images in seconds, but it does so with significantly lower radiation doses compared to other imaging methods.
- Digital X-rays save time because they are available quickly.
Digital X-rays allow you to instantly view scanned images without waiting. They are also more efficient in capturing high-quality images, reducing the need for repeat imaging and thus the patient’s exposure to radiation.
There are several types of diagnostic imaging of teeth and jaws
The type of imaging is determined by the dentist, depending on the patient’s needs.
