Digital X-Ray

Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. 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.

Battlefield Imaging is the first and only imaging center or hospital with 100 miles of Chattanooga to take full advantage of digital imaging

Not only are the clear, sharp images available to review within seconds, they are stored in their original digital format, so that the quality does not degrade over time.  The images can also be transferred electronically to the referring doctor's office or to another member of Diagnostic Radiology Consultants if a consultation is necessary.
