Digital X-rays: Safety & radiation levels

Many patients ask us about radiation exposure levels from X-rays.

In summary, the exposure is minimal compared to other types of X-rays & daily living. Taking a full set of X-rays is less than that of a one-way cross country flight, or about equal to that of a 3-hour flight.

In our office, we use digital X-rays. Digital X-rays have lower radiation – in some cases, up to 80 percent lower. This is a pretty big deal.
