DIGITAL XRAY

CR is a form of X-ray imaging, where X-rays images are captured on special cassettes and subsequently modified on the computer before giving the film which is processed by digital cameras. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.

Advantages of immediate image preview and availability; elimination of costly film processing steps; a wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure; as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image.
