Al-Shifa Multi-Speciality Hospital is proud to offer digital X-Ray imaging to our community – an advanced technology that’s far superior to traditional X-Ray equipment.

Traditional X-ray equipment uses radiation to create an image that is imprinted onto film that must be developed. During this process, a large amount of information is lost that could contain valuable details that would help with diagnosis. In addition, film images cannot be manipulated or adjusted for more clarity.

With a digital X-ray, however, a smaller dose of radiation is used to create an image that exists as pure data. Special sensors instantly translate the data into a picture that can be viewed immediately and sent, stored and retrieved easily. This digital image provides roughly twice as much detail as a traditional X-ray can, giving your physician a far more accurate look at the area of concern. The image can also be improved through computer techniques that zoom, edge, lighten, or brighten – all of which helps with diagnosis.
