According to AHRA President, Jeffrey A. Palmucci, "Digital radiography is
an incredibly efficient technology, eliminating many steps for technologists.
In addition, DR addresses the increasing pressure from the government to
reduce waste and use of chemicals while providing a safer environment and a
better culture for hospital staff."
IDC's X-Series technology represents the third generation of its
commercially successful digital radiography system, with installations in
nearly 40 countries. The IDC X-Series CCD-based imaging detectors: X3C and X4C

practices and for healthcare providers in developing countries or markets.
The technology provides the following advances:
- Higher sensitivity and amplified dynamic range
- Lateral Overflow Drain to eliminate saturation artifacts
- Enhanced soft tissue imaging without compromising bone detail
- Significant increase in imaging performance
