turn analog x ray into digital x ray systemComputed Radiography (CR) is a way to scan your patients with your current analog X-ray system and also get all the benefits of having the image in a digital format.

If I had a nickel for every time I answered the question, "What is Computed Radiography (CR)?"... I’d probably have $4.60!

Feel free to send us your Radiolography questions... we’d love to assist in getting you the answer.  Also, if you’ve had a particularly good or bad experience with a CR system (high volume or low), we’d love to hear as well!
