Digital X-Rays are electromagnetic waves similar to light but are invisible. These radiations are capable of crossing the flesh and tissues of the body human but are stopped by the bones. X-ray imaging (radiography) is a commonly used technique in radiology where an X-ray machine is used to take the images of our bodies. To create an x-ray, our body part is exposed to a very small quantity of X-rays. After X-rays pass through the tissues, they fall on films which are further processed, sensors or detectors which are connected to a computer to create an image. Traditional X-rays use films to produce images where as Digital X-rays use sensors to capture images and transfer them to computers.

Digital X-Ray is basically an imaging test that helps the doctor get the view of various parts of your body most commonly to examine the chest, abdomen, and superficial soft tissues. X-rays can identify many different conditions, and they are often a fast and easy method for your doctor to make a diagnosis. X-rays are saved digitally on computers. Digital images can be viewed on-screen within minutes. A radiologist typically views and interprets the results and sends a report to your doctor, who then explains the results to you. In an emergency, your X-ray results can be made available to your doctor in minutes.
