A digital X-ray (digital radiology) is performed similarly to conventional X-rays but use a special imaging detector that "reads" the body part rather than exposing it on film. This is the same technique used for regular digital cameras. Digital X-rays allow for faster results and delivery to other doctors as the images can be viewed on a computer rather than having to send the actual film. This technique also exposes patients to less radiation, a minor risk involved in conventional X-rays. The speed and safety of digital X-rays make them the preferred type of imaging test and a top-quality service we are proud to offer.
Our digital X-ray units are staffed by certified technologists. By X-raying patients at the time of their appointment, we are able to provide our doctors with the types of images they need in order to diagnose and treat symptoms on the spot. By reading the X-rays, our doctors eliminate another charge to the patient and also expedite care.
On the Day of Your Digital X-Ray:
- Bring your doctor’s order for your X-ray and your insurance card(s) with you to your appointment.
- If an X-ray has previously been taken, please bring the films with you to your appointment.
- If you are unable to bring your previous films with you, your appointment may need to be rescheduled.
