• Digital Radiography (DR)

    Regional Orthopedics offers Digital Radiography (DR) in its Manhattan and Staten Island locations. DR is the most sophisticated form of x-ray imaging where digital X-ray sensors are used to capture the image. Following capture, the image may be manipulated using the power of software to achieve a variety of powerful diagnostic and therapeutic advantages:

    • maximize clarity and resolution of the image
    • magnify areas of interest
    • stitch multiple images together to acquire a panoramic view
    • availability of the image to template orthopedic implants and/or create a surgical plan
    • digital storage of the image for easy access and for comparison along a timeline

    Other advantages include:

    • Less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography
    • Time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images
    • Immediate image preview and availability
    • A wider dynamic range which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure
    • The ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance the overall display of the image.
