Digital Radiography (DR) Digital Imaging uses digital electronic sensors to produce an imaging on an electronic device. The benefits allow for a much faster results then using traditional photographic film. Within minutes medical staff can log into Mobile X-ray of Louisiana's portal to obtain patient results. This increases efficiency and creates a better workflow process.
Portable x-ray machines allow the technician to perform the x-ray onsite of the accident. This increases patient safety, allows for faster and more accurate results.
