History of Digital Radiography

Digital radiography (DR) has been around since the 1970s, even though the production of X-rays dates back to centuries ago. It all began with Wilhelm Röntgen’s discovery of the X-ray on November 8, 1895. One of the first photographic plates he used during his many tests and research was a film of his wife’s, Anna Bertha, hand. During Roentgen’s day, X-rays were unheard of, and his discovery even earned him the first-ever Nobel Prize in physics (1901).

Comparison of CR and DR


Computed radiography (CR) & digital radiography (DR) have become unbelievably prevalent in imaging facilities worldwide. To make the most out of these two advanced digital imaging systems, radiologists and radiographers must have high-bandwidth web facilities and reliable computer networks.

In this write-up, we’re going to dive deeper into digital radiography vs. computed radiography and discuss all you need to know about these two radiography systems.
