Digital X-ray

All types of X-rays are taken at Unihealth using state-of-the-art digitizer with printing of images on highest quality films.

Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. The display is separated from the image captured so that processing and contrast adjustment are possible before the image is viewed. The availability of a digital image means ready input into relevant computer software and it thus opens up the possibility of computer-aided detection and classification of abnormality.

Digital X-ray films of different parts of the body are obtained. Most commonly these are of the chest, abdomen, kidney-ureter-bladder (KUB), spine and different bones and joints.
