Digital Radiography (DR)

Digital X-ray replaces the use of film or computed radiagraphy (CR) plates with a direct digital transfer of X-ray images into the PACS. Digital radiography (DR) is the direct conversion of transmitted X-rays into a digital image using an array of solid-state detectors such as amorphous selenium or silicon, with computer processing and display of the image.
