Digital x-rays at Eledent hospitals is an excellent new way to help diagnose possible oral problems. The digital radiography not only emits half the amount of radiation associated with traditional x-rays but is also less time-consuming. A sensor is placed in the mouth which captures the images at a high quality and the same can be viewed through a system. Our team can then review the information with you right from the computer screen.
