Digital Radiography

DR-300x159Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film or computed radiography (CR) cassettes. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing cassette readers or chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Less radiation is used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography or CR.

According to an article posted on ITN, “Now more than ever, hospitals and imaging clinics are trying to maximize the value of their imaging equipment, and digital radiography (DR) solutions in particular are proving to be a tremendous source of profit for many organizations. Doing more with less is the goal, and DR systems are providing beneficial reductions in the three most important areas — money, time and dose.

At Richardson Healthcare, we understand that our customers operate in an industry where efficiency and cost-savings are intertwined with patient care. Richardson Healthcare can help you achieve this while saving you time and money.
