Digital X-ray involves exposing a body part to a small dose of radiation to produce an image of an internal organ. An X-ray image is produced when a small amount of radiation passes through the body and strikes an image sensitive plate placed on the other side of the body. This film is then placed in a developing machine to produce images.

X-ray images were the first form of medical imaging and have been refined to be safer than ever, delivering images that are more detailed than ever before. Fair Lawn’s diagnostic imaging can help your doctors make the best decisions about your health.
