Digital X-ray system




             We use the lightning fast Fuji DR system, which processes digital x-ray images within a mere 2 seconds while administering a minimal dose to the patient and maintaining optimal image clarity.  

                X-ray is where radiology originated from and is the most common form. X-rays can either be immobile or moving pictures and can be obtained fast. Films captured by X-rays feature bodily parts in shades of gray. This hue is darkest on areas where X-rays are least absorbed and are lighter in dense areas (such as bones) where X-ray absorption is greater.

              Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.

            Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability; elimination of costly film processing steps; a wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure; as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image.

How do I prepare for my X - Ray?


  • In general, you undress whatever part of your body needs examination. You may wear a gown to cover yourself during the exam (will be available at the centre), depending on which area is being X-rayed. You may also be asked to remove jewelry, eyeglasses and any metal objects that may obscure the X-ray image, because these objects can show up on an X-ray.
