Digital X-rays Give You Faster Results
The wait for x-rays to be developed is not that long, but when you're in pain or are dealing with strange symptoms, that short wait can seem interminable. A faster and easier way to literally see what's going on is to use digital x-rays, which don't take as long to develop and are a lot simpler to share between facilities, if needed. You can get digital x-rays in house at Vitality Health New York in New York City, which makes finding the right treatment a more straightforward process.
Speed on Two Fronts
When you have digital x-rays done, the image from the x-ray machine is converted into a computer file that can be displayed on a screen. This process eliminates the need to develop film and makes the whole x-ray sequence go a lot faster. Within minutes, your doctor or therapist can have the image at their desk or on a monitor in the exam room. This speed is comforting when you're dealing with something painful or alarming. Plus, if an image is not clear, the technician will see that quickly and can take additional images without making you wait for long.
Digital images also make it easier for doctors and facilities to share your records. If you have digital images taken at one facility where you're receiving some therapy, and you need to send the x-rays to another doctor (e.g., you just moved to the area and have had x-rays done at one place but want your old doctor in your old city to look at them, too), the transfer is much easier than having to mail films, which could take several days.
Note that when you have digital images taken, the process is no different for you. You still sit or lie on a table with protective coverings while a technician takes the images. There are no other tasks you have to do or tests you have to go through. It's a win-win situation for you and the doctor.
