Radiovisiography is a type of X-ray imaging, which uses digital X-ray
sensors instead of photographic film. It provides efficiency of time through bypassing
chemical processing and digitally transfers and enhances images. Further, less radiation
is utilized for producing an image with contrast similar to conventional radiology.
A digital image capture device captures images in digital X-ray radiology and scan. This results in an immediate image preview, and availability, removal of expensively film processing steps, bigger dynamic range, etc.
