Digital X-ray

As Fort Wayne's first all-digital hospital, Dupont Hospital offers a full range of digital diagnostic services, including digital X-rays. Why are digital X-rays better? For one thing, they save you time. With a digital X-ray, there's no waiting around for film to be developed because there is no film! Instead, the X-ray image is converted directly into electronic bits of information that are stored in a computer where they can be viewed and enlarged for closer study.

Digital X-rays can also be transmitted electronically, so they can easily be sent to your doctor or another specialist for consultation.
