What is Digital X-Ray?

An X-ray examination is a painless way for clinicians to diagnose and monitor many health conditions. X-rays are a type of radiation called electromagnetic waves and it produces images of bones and certain tissues within the body.

In this, digital X-ray sensors are used for imaging instead of traditional photography film.

Advantage of Digital X-Ray

The advantages of capturing and storing X-Ray Images digitally rather than on film are overwhelming. Digital x-ray imaging has many advantages:

  • The images can be stored in a very compact manner without risk of loss or deterioration in quality.
  • The images can be easily enlarged and “suspicious” areas of an image can be more easily studied.
  • The images can be easily retrieved, and can be transmitted electronically to an expert or to another medical practitioner in the same hospital or to an insurance company for reimbursement purposes.
  • Enhanced images
  • No radiation used to produce an image
  • Time efficiency
  • Immediate availability of the image to preview
  • Cost-efficient
Special X-ray Investigations:

Almost all special x-ray investigations are done in the centre such as IVU (Intra-venous urography), Barium swallow, Barium meal upper GIT, Double and single contrast barium enema, HSG ( Hystero-salpingography), OCG, Sinogram etc are done in the centre. Charges for special investigations include the standard cost of non-ionic contrast unlike other centres which charge it separately or ask you to bring the contrast.

X-ray FAQs:

Are there any risks associated with the X-Ray test?

X-rays are a type of radiation called electromagnetic waves. The amount of radiation you receive from a single x-ray is very low. Technologists are trained to keep radiation exposures down to a minimum while ensuring optimum diagnostic accuracy.

Female patients who are, or might be pregnant, must inform the referring doctor, technologist or radiologist prior to having any x-rays.

How long does an X-Ray take?

Your time with us will depend on the type of x-ray being done as well as your mobility or physical condition. The process of taking a single x-ray will last only a few minutes, however, some examinations require that x-rays be taken in different positions. More complex imaging or more than one body part to be x-rayed requires more time to complete.
