Digital radiography

A mainstay of diagnostic radiography

Digital radiography is a painless procedure during which static images of the skeleton and internal organs are taken. The most common X-ray examination is a chest X-ray. Digital radiography is also often used to examine the kidneys, ureter, bladder and skeleton.

If movement and flow processes within the body are to be visualised, then fluoroscopy instruments are used. This will allow the doctor to observe the movement of organs or the flow of a contrast medium in real time.

X-ray examination procedure

The X-ray examination procedure is quick and painless. Beforehand you will need to undress the body part being examined and remove all jewellery. The doctor on duty or the X-ray assistant will give you instructions on body positioning and breathing before leaving the room. It is important that you remain still when the image is taken. Don’t worry: capturing the image only takes a few tenths of a second.
