Digital X-ray

With the advancements in digital technology, Columbia Integrated Health Centre is now able to provide patients with instant digital imaging.

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.
Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability; elimination of costly film processing steps; a wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure; as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display quality of the image.
Our Digital X-ray services include a comprehensive Radiology report as well as a digital copy for the patient to keep for their records. X-rays may be recommended by your clinician to assist in confirming a diagnosis as well as to rule out other conditions.
Our X-ray rates are very reasonable and in most cases can be reimbursed by your health insurance provider. This in-house service also provides convenience for most patients that don't have a family physician or are too busy to take time out of work to make multiple appointments.
