How does it work?

Just like Digital photography, Digital X-ray works the same but, it uses x-radiation instead and can see through or see inside your body. It will take 1 image at a time and you will be asked to do different positions and sometimes be given breathing instructions while doing it. It is painless and it is quicker than a conventional x-ray.  

Who can have Digital Radiography/X-ray?

  • From Pediatrics to Adults and even Geriatrics; male or female but for pregnant patients, it should be assessed properly by the referring doctor if the benefits can outweigh the risk.
  • Infants & Children

Sometimes these patients need extra motivation or extra effort to complete an x-ray. A parent or significant others are asked to hold, restrain or at least stay with the patient while being x-rayed. This person will be given proper protective measures and will not be exposed directly. Importantly this person must not be pregnant.

Why Digital Radiography/X-ray?

  • A non-invasive way to study parts of the body
  • Time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing of images
  • Ability to digitally transfer and enhance images


  • Use of Ionizing radiation

Routine Operating Procedure in Digital Radiography

  • Safety questions are asked. (confirmation of Name & DOB, site of the problem, and pregnancy screening for females)
  • Hospital gowns are provided if needed to avoid artefacts on images.
  • The patient’s personal belongings (including phone, credit cards, money, etc.) are all placed in the locker provided.
  • The radiographer will explain what will be your position, breathing instruction if needed & how many pictures to take to complete the exam.
  • All the time a patient is provided with lead protection to cover areas that are not involved in the examination for protection from unnecessary exposure.
