At Green Mountain Orthopaedic Surgery, "green" isn't just part of our name, it’s our philosophy, too. That's why we use the latest high-tech digital X-ray equipment. Not only does it produce a better quality image, but it also reduces the impact on the environment.
There are a number of benefits of digital X-rays over traditional film X-rays, including:
- Digital images can be computer-enhanced. Larger, clearer, color-enhanced images can result in a more accurate diagnosis.
- More recent X-rays can be digitally compared to previous X-rays. By subtracting out everything that is the same and providing a clear image of anything that is different, tiny changes that may not be visible to the naked eye can be caught earlier.
- You are exposed to much less radiation (up to 90% less) than traditional X-rays.
- Digital radiography is also better for the environment. It doesn’t use photo chemicals and traditional film, thus eliminating waste.
