Digital radiography is an undeniable progress in medical imaging. It has many advantages:
Digital radiography renders obsolete the use of developing chemicals which are harmful to the environment. By using reusable films, it greatly contributes to the protection of nature.
3D digital radiography, also called computed tomography or digitized Cone-Beam Computed Tomography answers to another significant advance in medical imaging. It allows us to take several x-rays simultaneously on several levels, revised by the software and rendering a 3D image.
3D digital radiography is now installed in about 350 firms in Switzerland. Due to the increased radiation dose, the information must be clearly defined and are the subject of a consensus recently published by the Swiss Society of Dental Radiology and Maxillofacial.
