Diagnostic Imaging with Digital Radiography

CR (Computed Radiography) is equipment that process, adjust and store x-ray films in digital system. This system replaces the manual system and automatic processor which some lacks of disadvantages.

1. No more dark room usage for Operator/Radiographer in dealing with film processing.
2. Computed Radiography is higher quality. This aspect is very important thing for patient’s diagnosis and also for Radiologist/Doctors who want to interpret the result.
