The time is now for many medical professionals/practice owners to convert to digital radiography. However, it’s understandable if you are a little apprehensive about making the leap. However, in many cases, the factors holding professionals back are based either in misconceptions or falsehoods. Here are a few commonly-circulated myths about digital radiography.
As a start, many people think that digital radiography has a major financial barrier to entry. Not necessarily. Remember, as technology gets more established, it’s cheaper to implement. Also, you need to think about long-term and short-term expense. Holding onto an older piece of equipment means more money spent on repairs, and lost on downtime and potential lost patients if you can’t service their needs. Spending some now once is better than a repeated pattern of spending.
There’s also a lot of concern about the personal element, patients and staff alike not liking the new take on things. Largely, though, this isn’t true. Patients are easily swerved by the better image quality and speed, while your staff will appreciate the efficiency.
Digital radiography has grown by leaps in bounds in the last decade, and if you’re a company looking to make the transition, it’s important that you make it for the right reasons.
