Digital radiology is a form of X-RAY imaging, where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. The advantages of digital x-ray include time efficiency and less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast as compared conventional radiography. This is the investigation fir assessing injured limbs or examining the chest for any infection. An image is produced when a small amount of radiation passes through the body. You will not feel any discomfort during the procedure.
There is no special preparation for most x-rays. You may be asked to change into a gown before the examination. You may be asked to remove jewellery, eyeglasses, and any metal objects. You will be exposed to the minimum amount of radiation. If you are pregnant or suspect that you may be, please inform your doctor before the x-ray as special precautions may have to be taken.
