This enhanced version of a standard digital radiographic system can acquire up to 15 sequential #radiographs per second resulting in 20 seconds of motion and multiple individual #radiographic images. #DDR is not fluoroscopy; it is #cineradiography, or #Xray that moves.

DDR allows clinicians to observe movement like never before. This enhanced version of a standard digital radiographic system can acquire up to 15 sequential radiographs per second resulting in 20 seconds of motion and multiple individual radiographic images. DDR is not fluoroscopy; it is cineradiography, or X-ray that moves. The resulting images provide clinicians with a 4-D data set (a video) that depicts physiological movement.
