Digital Radiography (CDR)
x-rays can now be taken using sensors that transmit the image directly
into a computer monitor. This larger image helps the patient understand the
doctor's explanations more easily and enables the doctor to "zoom in"
on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage to this new technology
is that it reduces the amount of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also
faster. The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear in the monitor.
In addition, this new technology is friendly to the environment since no chemicals
are needed for developing the image.
