Transitioning to Digital Radiography

This week we are starting on a project that has been in preparation for a long time: installing a digital radiography system. This system has several advantages over our existing film system, specifically:

– Images can be captured and viewed in eight seconds. Previously they had to be developed before viewing, a process taking a couple of minutes.
– All images go straight to the computer for storage and viewing, which allows simple sharing with radiologists and the clients.
– No more chemicals!

I will be writing about the project as it progresses.
