Digital radiography is the most advanced and eco-friendly method for taking x-rays. It doesn’t require chemicals or paper.
Utilizes computer technology and digital sensors for the acquisition, viewing, storage, and sharing of radiographic images.
The advantages of digital radiography is that it reduces the patient’s exposure to radiation and images can be viewed and easily shared instantly after being taken, and seen simultaneously as needed by multiple practitioners.
At Chesapeake Smiles Dental an electronic pad, known as a sensor is used instead of film to acquire a digital image.
After the image is taken it goes directly into the patient’s file on the computer. Once stored it can be easily viewed, shared, or printed out.
