Sheldon Road Chiropractic now offers digital x-ray via the Fuji XR-C cassette radiography system.
The benefits of using digital x-ray include:
- Digital images may be retrieved from an electronic archive for future reference
- Lower dosage x-rays can often be used to achieve the same high quality picture as with film.
- Digital x-ray images can be enhanced and manipulated with computers and sent via a network to other workstations and computer monitors so that many people can share the information and assist in the diagnosis.
- Digital images can be archived onto compact optical disks or digital tape drives saving tremendously on storage space and manpower needed for a traditional x-ray film library
