Radiation Dose Levels between CR, DR and Film Screen

X-ray imaging is a diagnostic procedure that is known to expose patients to a certain amount of radiation. Excess radiation doses can be dangerous and can even be the cause for certain diseases like cancer in some patients. The level of radiation, however, may depend on the X-ray imaging technique being used – conventional radiographic film, Computed Radiography (CR) or Digital Radiography (DR). While some speculate that CR has increased thedose of radiation that a patient is exposed to, some believe that these methods are still far safer than the conventional film-screen X-ray method. <Read More>
