Most importantly, digital radiographs significantly reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays, by as much as 90%. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow our patients to better understand their treatment. They are instant and are considered a green technology by eliminating the need for developer and chemicals to process them. Our office is equipped in each treatment room with the ability to take standard x-rays. We also have a digital panoramic x-ray capability.
