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.

he DigitalDiagnost C90 is Philips newest premium digital radiography (DR) system, introduced here at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2018 meeting. It is the industry’s first radiography unit with a live camera image directly displayed at the tube head to provide a clear view of the anatomical area being scanned during the patient positioning process.
