Radiography with X-ray is the starting point for diagnosing or screening of a variety of health issues, including pneumonia. X-ray technology is increasingly easily available to the medical community due to its low cost. It’s noninvasive, relatively harmless, and quickly produces the images we need to be able to diagnose issues effectively.
Digital radiography has become a much more efficient, cost effective, and an even safer method of producing diagnostic images.
Digital X-rays produce 80% less radiation than traditional. This means it is highly unlikely you would develop issues from occasional traditional radiation exposure, but it is even less likely with the process used in digital X-rays.
