We take all of our x-rays with digital sensors. This includes the individual exposures as well as the panoramic one that goes all the way around the head.
Digital x-rays provide added safety as well as convenience. Digital sensors require less than half of the radiation needed to take x-rays with traditional film. This provides less radiation exposure for our patients! And because the image shows up on our computers, we can see right away if we captured the right anatomy and can show it in great detail, enlarged on our screens. This saves time for our patients and improves our ability to diagnose correctly.
