RVG: (Radio- Visiography / Digital radiography)


RVG (Radio- Visiography / Digital radiography) is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional x ray films. Advantages include

  1. time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing
  2. ability to digitally transfer and enhance images.
  3. less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
  4. Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device.
  5. immediate image preview and availability; in less than 5 seconds.
  6. elimination of film processing steps;
  7. wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure;
  8. ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image.
  9. number of images can be taken in no time.
