Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography. X-Ray system includes technologies such as computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR). The accessibility of image detectors technologies like CCD, CMOS, and flat panel detectors are being used to retrofit and exchange the old existing analog X-ray units into CR and DR systems; this is driving the upgradation of analog systems into digital.
The major drivers of digital x-ray market are technology advancement in automation, aging population, and need for improved and faster imaging methods for higher patient throughput. However, High costs and ionizing radiations, and growing incidences of chronic disease like tuberculosis, pneumonia and other gastrointestinal disorders are restraints of the market.
