FACTS AND STATS

Studies by Canada Health Infoway suggest the move towards digital X-rays could improve the productivity of radiology specialists by 25 to 35 per cent. Already, 80 per cent of X-rays in Canada are digitized.

Digital X-rays also mean that radiologists are now able to help patients in remote areas, which cuts down on expensive delays and injuries from moving patients.
