Digital Radiography (DR)

Digital Radiography or DR X-Ray uses X-Ray sensitive plates to directly capture data and send it to a computer system for image creation in a near-instantaneous fashion. This greatly decreases the amount of radiation the patient is subjected to as compared to traditional
X-ray methods (film or CR X-Ray).
