One of the most common diagnostic tools that doctors rely on to identify a wide range of health concerns are X-rays. Conventional X-rays are helpful in providing images of tumors, fractures, and other internal conditions or abnormalities requiring medical treatment. However, there is a more efficient and cost-effective means of diagnostic imaging.
At Starling Diagnostics in the Parkchester section of Bronx, New York, our highly qualified team of specialists regularly utilize digital radiography (or digital X-rays) for diagnostic purposes.
Digital X-rays are a more advanced form of radiography. They use special X-ray-sensitive plates to directly capture data during a patient examination, which is then immediately transferred to a computer system that produces images. This provides several advantages, including:
- Time efficiency with immediate image preview and availability
- The elimination of costly film processing steps
- A wider dynamic range that avoids over- or under-exposure
- The ability to apply special image processing techniques to enhance overall display quality
- Less radiation
