MACHADO ACUNA, Fernando; SALAS BLANCO, Roberto  and  RIVERO PONS, Beatriz Elena. Theoretical considerations on digital radiography as a diagnostic mean. MEDISAN [online]. 2023, vol.27, n.4, e4256.  Epub Aug 29, 2023. ISSN 1029-3019.

During the last decades the process of obtaining digital medical images has advanced technologically, in such a way that they have become indispensable in the recognition of numerous diseases and in the application of different treatments; however, the implementation of digital radiography constitutes a challenge for professionals in this branch who do not have a complete training, so it is necessary to develop coherent strategies to facilitate its use. This paper offers some theoretical considerations about digital radiography as a diagnostic means, which implies a change in the practice of professionals in this specialty, who need to update their knowledge in relation to this technique, in order to get better their performance and establish accurate diagnoses that lead to effective treatments, and thus achieve the welfare and quality of life in the population.

Keywords : radiographic image; digital radiography; diagnostic means.
