Advantages of digital X-ray technology boosting the market growth

Digital X-ray or radiography is defined as a form of X-ray imaging in which digital X-ray sensors are used instead of any traditional photographic film. The major advantages of using digital X-ray include time efficiency, the capability to transfer images digitally, and enhanced images. In addition to this, very less radiation is used to produce an image of same or similar contrast to conventional radiography. Digital radiography utilizes a digital image capture device instead of X-ray film. Hence, immediate image preview and availability is attained along with the elimination of costly film processing steps. Additionally, orthopedic surgeons depend on X-ray images for minimally invasive procedures such as knee and wrist joints, ankle among others. The X-ray images provide real-time imagery and allow accurate diagnosis. The biggest advantage of digital technology is that it enables electronic transfer of images to any location, as well as guides the doctor to treat the patients.
