Healthcare transformation in veterinary care - making the leap from analog to digital
With computed radiography (CR) and direct radiography (DR), there is no film development.
That saves space (no dark room or film storage), and eliminates the use of environmentally unfriendly and hazardous chemicals.
Film waste is eliminated, too. By avoiding repeat X-ray exposures - up to four or five per exam with conventional imaging - CR and DR offer cost savings and reduced radiation doses for the animal, its owner and the veterinarian.
Acquiring images is much faster: acquisition time in CR can be as low as 30 to 60 seconds. With DR, image acquisition is just a matter of seconds.
