What Is Digital X-Ray Service?

Transition to Digital X-ray

It’s been observed that best orthopedic surgeon are making the transition from traditional film X-rays to Digital X-ray format. Digital X-rays have advantages like high-quality images with fewer storage needs and improved efficiency.

Transition To Digital X-ray

Although, Best orthopedic surgeons should give careful consideration to the X-ray imaging needs of their practices and whether they have enough patient volume to justify making the transition to Digital X-ray, said Kishore Tipirneni, MD, with Phoenix Orthopedic Consultants in Glendale, Ariz.

“There are differences between the quality of images that a digital X-ray system can produce and those that come from traditional [film] X-rays. Still, it’s a big switch for many people, and taking on something new like this can be overwhelming if you don’t know what to consider for your specific practice,” said Tipirneni, who discussed the pros and cons of setting up a digital X-ray system in an instructional course lecture at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons 72nd Annual Meeting.

Advantages Of Digital X-ray

  1. No hazardous chemicals. Eliminated: exposure to fumes and handling harmful chemicals.
  2. Cost savings. Darkroom space can be converted for other uses. Film and chemical costs are eliminated.
  3. Speed pictures are generated faster, decreasing communication time and up advancement.
  4. Fewer retakes. pictures could also be viewed directly and increased as required.
  5. Ease of use. pictures may be directly enlarged to check bone and/or soft tissue during a single exposure.
  6. Easy storage and transmission. straightforward to access, add them to patient records or transmit to different doctors.
  7. Increased revenue. quicker service and improved diagnosing will attract a lot of patients to the apply.

What About Expenses

There is an initial cost involved in procuring required devices to capture and store digital x-ray and this cost may be on the higher side for single -physician or small hospitals.

But Case study says the operating cost at the end between traditional film x-ray and digital x-ray image results in a less operational cost for a digital x-ray which is longer run very profitable to the practitioners and hospital. Because otherwise traditional film x-ray involves the cost of sheet films, processing chemicals, jackets, etc, which in turn result in considerable cost, which can be avoided using digital x-ray image processing infrastructure.

Hesitation to change

Despite the many benefits of digital X-ray instruments, most orthopedic surgeons have not yet made the transition, according to Fischer.

The main reason for the same is that no one particularly likes to change, and digital imaging changes the way the X-ray images are exposed, viewed and stored. Also, there is a learning curve of handling the digital x-ray instruments and same is not liked by a human being in particular and that results in hesitation in adapting to the digital x-ray system.

Future of Digital X-ray

Fischer expects more best orthopedic surgeons to come on board with digital x-ray system in the next several years. We are working closely with early adopters of the system to encourage them to use this system and educating practitioners around with advantages, portability, and quality they will get with this new digital image x-ray system. “I expect that over the next five years, an increasing number of practitioners/hospitals will be going digital. We are experiencing a growing trend of radiologists who won’t interpret an X-ray unless it is sent to them in digital format. This may not be a problem for orthopedists, but it does show that digital imaging is no longer a curiosity and may be on its way to becoming a standard,” he told Orthopedics Today.
