What's the difference between a pet X-ray machine and a pet DR?
Answer: The similarity between pet X-ray machine and pet DR is that they are X-ray inspection equipment for pet medical diagnosis. They all use the physical penetration effect of X-ray to carry out X-ray examination for pet internal tissues, so as to quickly diagnose the disease and give timely treatment.
The difference between a pet analog X-ray machine and a pet DR is that the image can not be displayed directly on the screen after the analog X-ray machine has finished shooting. It needs to be washed, developed and fixed before the film can be displayed. The time interval from filming to film production is relatively long. Pet DR is a digital high-frequency intelligent X-ray machine, which uses digital flat panel detector to replace the function of film directly. It can be displayed on the computer monitor in a few seconds after shooting, and can process various image in the later period. This advantage greatly saves the doctor's diagnosis time.
Secondly, in terms of image quality, pet analog X-ray machine is different from pet DR. Pet analog X-ray machine has blurred image through film, and the image effect of pet DR is clearer and easier to diagnose. Pet DR does not need consumables, one investment, lifelong benefit.
Finally, pet DR radiation is low, X shutdown radiation is high, the harm to human body is great, especially PET doctors say close operation. Therefore, now pet hospitals are more in favor of pet DR, gradually phasing out the traditional analog X-ray machine.
