What are Digital X-Rays?

Traditional x rays used in emergency medicine are exposed onto a photographic film that needs to undergo a developing process which can take anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes before it can be viewed. This process delays the diagnosis of injuries in the emergency room, extending patient suffering unnecessarily.

The new technology behind digital x rays overcomes those issues; much like a digital camera, digital x-ray machines utilize an electronic sensor to capture and store the images onto a computer. The images can be viewed immediately, and because they are digital, doctors can manipulate them, enlarging them or adding more contrast to the image which aids them in detecting problems more easily.

A Vital Player in Emergency Medicine: Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are used in emergency medicine to detect a variety of problems in bones, chest, and abdomen, such as:

  • Diagnose bone fractures and dislocated joints.
  • Reveal proper alignment and stabilization of bony fragments following treatment of a fracture.
  • Locate foreign objects in the soft tissue surrounding the bones.
  • Diagnose kidney, bladder, and gallstones.
  • Expose intestinal blockages.
  • Diagnose perforations in the stomach or intestines.
  • Ingestion of foreign objects.
  • Diagnose pneumonia, emphysema.
  • Diagnose heart failure and other cardiovascular problems.
  • Diagnose Hirschsprung disease in children (a blockage of the large intestine).

How Important are Digital X-Rays
in Emergency Medicine?

Every minute in the ER counts. That’s why faster more accurate diagnoses are the key to saving lives and improving patient care.

Digital X Rays offer clear advantages over traditional x ray imaging in an emergency room setting:

  • Digital x-rays produce 80% less radiation exposure.
  • They offer x ray image enhancement by allowing technicians and doctors to control the exposure of each image in real time.
  • They improve quality and clarity of the images making it easier to detect tiny fractures and imperfections.
  • Images can be easily shared and stored, minimizing clutter in the ER and making it possible to share images with other practitioners in minutes.
  • Improved time and productivity, being able to diagnose patients faster means treatment can start sooner, alleviating patient suffering and time spent in the ER.
