X-ray in Motion
X-Ray that Moves - Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR)
Dynamic Digital Radiography (DDR) allows you to observe movement like never before. This novel low-dose x-ray imaging technique that enables visualization of anatomy in motion. The DDR can acquire up to 15 sequential radiographs per second, allowing you to observe physiological cycles, as well as individual radiographic images (up to 17"x 17" in size). X-Ray that Moves is NOT Fluoroscopy – it is in fact the X-Ray precursor to CT or MRI. Cineradiography is x-ray in motion that is derived using digital radiography
Advantages of X-Ray that moves:
- Fast Exam: In less than a minute, X-Ray that Moves gives clinicians up to 20 seconds of physiological movement with a simple acquisition, performed by radiology staff without the need for physician presence
- Low Dose Radiation: With X-Ray that Moves, radiation is lower than an average fluoroscopy exam.
- Convenient & Versatile: The X-Ray that Moves system performs all standard X-rays, and images are taken standing, seated or on a table.
- DDR Exams are Used to Assess Spine Stability and Joint Motion: Standard X-ray exams usually show a static view of the span in a flexed and extended positions. DDR can help assess spine stability by providing a detailed view of the full range of motion. Assessing movement has been shown to Dynamic imaging has been shown to help assess joint and extremities in motion. Many orthopedic facilities are adding a DDR views of spine and extremities to diagnose stability, joint space, assess sources of pain biomechanics, musculoskeletal injury, such as whiplash, as treatment follow-up , and postoperative evaluation of movement before ordering a more advanced exam like CT or MRI. Furthermore, showing patients the joint movement makes communication simpler and more effective.
