Digital X-Ray Q & A

by Jack A. Atzmon, DC, mcs-P

What Is Digital X-Ray Technology?

X-ray technology has been used for decades in the health and medical field. An x-ray is an invisible wavelength of light that can penetrate certain tissues. It's a lot like taking a picture of the inside of your body. The information gathered in these pictures is then stored digitally and can be seen on a computer screen.

Different tissues will be lighter or darker on an x-ray, depending on their relative density. This is what allows x-ray wavelengths to create pictures of your internal body. Soft tissue structures, like muscle and fat, appear dark gray. Bone, tumors, and other dense structures appear white. A break or fracture in a bone will look like a dark line.

Is Digital X-Ray Technology Better Than A Standard X-Ray?

Generally, yes. The images taken on a digital x-ray tend to be much more detailed and can be viewed with a high resolution. This makes it easier to identify a potential problem or abnormality within a certain area of your body that may otherwise have been missed on a standard x-ray film. Because the x-rays images are stored digitally, it's much easier for Dr. Atzmon to access and share the information with other healthcare specialists who may need to know about your results.

Lastly, a digital x-ray exposes you to much less amount of radiation compared to the conventional technology, making it a safer option for the diagnostic process.

What Kinds Of Conditions Can Be Detected On A Digital X-Ray?

Dr. Atzmon refers to digital x-rays to help him diagnose and monitor the progression of a variety of disease processes, including:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Scoliosis
  • Herniated disc
  • Tumors
  • Post-surgical (especially following a joint replacement)

Of course, some people with signs and symptoms of a physical problem will have a normal-looking x-ray. In other cases, someone may have an abnormal looking x-ray even if they aren't complaining of any symptoms. Dr. Atzmon always takes the time to discuss your radiology results with you and refer you to any specialists as needed to optimize your care.
