For the patient the digital x-ray technology provides two very essential advantages:
Firstly, the radiation exposure is much lower and secondly, the recordings in digital form are immediately available – therefore long waiting times entirely will be omitted.
The recording takes place in a conventional manner by an x-ray emitter. Then the images will be digitized, stored and immediately are available for analysis and diagnosis. Because of the digital type the recordings may be transferred via email within seconds.
For instance, if you unexpectedly need a dental treatment during your vacation the x-ray images of your teeth may be sent electronically. The integration into a practice software of a doctor’s office or a hospital is no problem – and the locally attending doctor will have a detailed picture.
