With ever-evolving medical technology, your clinic can’t afford to stay in the past. Using film radiography is now nearly obsolete—and with good reason.
Here are 4 reasons you should implement digital x-ray imaging in your practice.
Enhanced X-Ray Image Quality
When it comes to using imaging technology, detail and clarity are two of the most important factors you need to account for. The equipment used for digital x-rays provides enhanced image quality, allowing you to clearly see the smallest details clearly. This is in contrast with the traditional film previously used where the chances of missing out on details are much higher.
Another way digital x-ray systems help increase clarity and details by being flexible in terms of color and texture. You can control the amount of exposure that each image receives, making it darker or lighter as per your need. Additionally, you can also enhance the color and enlarge images for greater visibility. These features help in detecting a particular condition more accurately and allow for a faster diagnosis.
Efficiency & Productivity
With digital x-rays, you no longer have to wait for days for the results to be revealed. The lengthy and long processing time that comes with conventional radiography reduces to just a few seconds.
In addition to saving you time, this also increases your facility’s productivity. You can easily store the digital x-ray images on a computer immediately after the procedure is complete, and have them ready for view. Since you have instant access to the files, you can assess the results more quickly. If there’s ever a need to send these files to a third party, you won’t have to wait for duplicates or the shipping period because they can be sent with just a simple click.
Uncluttered Office Space
Think of all the file cabinets you’ll be clearing out by going digital. Say goodbye to the filing, organizing, and storing patients’ x-rays in cabinet after cabinet. Using digital x-ray equipment eliminates the ordeal of having hardcopy radiographic images taking up your office space.
You can simply and directly access the required x-ray images from your database. Not only will this make it more convenient for your staff to obtain the relevant file, but it’ll also keep your office space clutter-free and much more organized.
Aside from being better for patients’ health, digital x-rays are also environmentally-friendly. Unlike traditional x-rays, there isn’t hazardous waste to dispose of, such as lead foil and films. Digital x-rays are the “greener” way of medical imaging, safer for the environment as well as human health.
