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!
