X-ray (digital film radiography) is an imaging technique that is useful in the detection of pathology of the bones and joints. X-rays are also useful for detecting some disease processes in soft tissue.

Using low-dose electromagnetic radiation, X-rays are used to diagnose disease by making pictures of the inside of the body. With Digital X-ray, images are available instantly. Since images are digital, they can be shared with radioloogy specialists whenever needed.
