Digital X-ray is a form of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-ray sensors instead of traditional film plates. This makes digital X-rays faster to process and allows the X-ray to be digitally transferred and enhanced.
X-rays are used to show the pathology with bones and joints (not soft tissues). The purpose of having an X-ray is for a chiropractor to confirm any injuries and/or diagnoses already given. It can also be used to rule out any other diagnoses that have not been given. In some uses, it can even be used to diagnose if a patient is pregnant.
