Digital Radiology

What is it?
Digital radiography or computed radiography (CR) uses digital technology to produce x-ray images. CR produces higher quality images with higher image resolution in contrast to film–screen radiography.
Radiography is a broad term that covers several types of studies that require the visualization of the internal parts of the body using x-ray techniques.
X-ray beams can pass through your body, but they are absorbed in different amounts depending on the density of the material they pass through. Dense materials, such as bone and metal, show up as white on X-rays. The air in your lungs shows up as black. Fat and muscle appear as varying shades of gray.
A portion of the x-rays are absorbed or scattered by the internal structure and the remaining x-ray pattern is transmitted to a detector so that an image may be recorded for later evaluation.
