Digital X-Ray

 

Active Health Chiropractic Clinic in Cosham, Portsmouth have recently installed a new Digital X-ray suite to ensure their patients experience the best technology and the safest option minimising radiation exposure.
 
Chiropractors are qualified in taking and reading X-ray's and X-rays are an invaluable tool for the chiropractic profession, as it allows chiropractors to see inside the body without surgery.
 
Originally, all X-rays used film to produce the images. Like the film you used in a camera, it had to be treated properly and images had to be developed in a darkroom using chemicals which was very time consuming. As technology developed, digital X-rays were introduced, using digital sensors rather than film.
 
Digital X-rays have clear advantages over the old-fashioned use of film.  Most importantly Digital X-rays expose patients to far less radiation than film X-rays, so they pose less of a health risk.


The images produced by film X-ray are often less clear than digital, and this sometimes results in the need for a second round of X-rays, meaning more radiation.
Digital images can easily be edited, enhanced, and viewed quickly for a diagnosis. The earlier the diagnosis, the better the chance of effective treatment.


Film X-rays require the use of hazardous chemicals for development, resulting in dangerous environmental waste.


Images are available much quicker with digital X-rays as they don't require time for development with film and chemicals.

As you can see, not only are there significant differences between film and digital X-rays, but those differences really do make a difference. At Active Health we are committed to minimising radiation exposure for patients and providing patients with the best technology, which is why we ONLY use digital X-ray.
