Like a digital camera, digital X-rays provide instant, dynamic images of bones that are normally printed on film.
Because digital X-rays are automatically uploaded to a computer, they can be digitally transferred and enhanced, maximizing health care efficiency. Our state-of-the-art Imaging Center prioritizes fast, accurate results, and digital X-rays are one way we provide this type of convenient care.

Do I need to do anything differently from a normal X-ray for a digital X-ray?
Digital X-rays have technology that makes them work a little differently from normal X-rays, but the process is the same. The machine will scan the affected part of your body and either directly upload to the technician’s computer, or will be transferred to a computer. In many cases, digital X-rays can use less radiation to produce a similar or better quality image.
You will be asked to remove any jewelry or metal items; however, digital X-rays require minimal preparation. You may want to wear loose clothing. Some X-rays require the use of a contrast dye so that certain parts of your X-ray will show up in a different color. The dye will be injected into you or given to you by mouth. Your doctor or the technician will provide you with more specific instructions about contrast material prior to your appointment if your X-ray.
How soon will I be able to see the results?
