FlatPanelDR X Ray Room

Patient exposure to radiation depends not just on the technique used, but also on the imaging protocols of the particular institution. However, multiple studies conducted in the past few years have revealed that generally, in comparison to CR and the conventional X-ray methods, Digital Radiography systems can lower the radiation doses that patients are exposed to.

Flat Panel Digital X-ray Detector or the FPXD is the latest development in x-ray technology. Have you ever wondered how they work? FPDs can normally be categorized into two segments – direct and indirect. The two different terms refer to the technique used to create images. While the former uses direct conversion detectors, the latter uses indirect conversion detectors. In the paragraphs that follow, the two methods will be discussed in detail.

Why it Pays to upgrade to Chiropractic Digital X-Ray

Chiropractic-DR-X-Ray

In my part-time practice we average about 90 x-ray series per month and this takes no time away from adjusting patients. It is really not difficult to find licensed x-ray technologists and they make excellent chiropractic assistants because they fully understand anatomy and are very well trained in handling patients. Let’s suppose that you put a $65,000 Digital X-ray System in your practice. With just the insurance reimbursement alone you would pay off this x-ray machine in slightly less than two years, if your practice is busier than my part-time practice you could pay it off in less.

What is Direct Digital Radiography?

The use of Digital Radiography has rapidly increased in recent years. Computed Radiography provided a cost-effective transition mode from the traditional Analog or Film (from the year 1895) to the Direct Digital Radiography (DDR), by using conventional X-ray Equipment. Direct Digital Radiography is a cassette-less imaging system and is ideal for applications where high throughput is of primary importance. The Direct Digital Radiography System should allow usage of all general radiography diagnostic applications.

What is DICOM and why is it important?

Dicom-flowchart

The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard is used for the exchange of images and related information. The DICOM standard can be thought of as having several levels of support, such as the support for image exchange for both senders and receivers, the underlying information model and information management services. This artcle provides a high-level overview of the characteristic elements of the DICOM standard.

(DR) Direct Digital Radiography Detectors

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world’s largest provider of thin-film-transistor, liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panels, announced that it has completed development of a flat panel X-ray detector (FPXD) for radiology machines, in collaboration with Vatech , a Korean medical machinery manufacturing company. By using digital imaging with thin-film transistor (TFT) technology, the diagnostic process is enhanced in many ways. In addition to delivering a much more precise image, Samsung’s new FPXD imaging sensor can save medical labs considerable time and money because No Film or Darkroom development processing is needed.
