At our offices we use digital x-rays. A digital x-ray is a diagnostic tool like an x-ray in general, but instead of using film or other means, it uses computer software to create images from raw data from the x-ray beam.
Digital images are created with electricity and no radiation. This is the reason why doctors recommend them so much! They're also considered a more accurate way of imaging bones, joints, and other body parts for abnormalities or injuries.
