The benefits of digital over analogue radiography include reduced overall cost, particularly at high imaging volumes, reduced examination time, increased patient throughput and a reduction in the number of repeat examinations, and improved physician access to images during examinations as a result of timely production and electronic transfer. These advantages of digital radiography can be exploited in the trauma setting, where diagnostic errors have been attributed primarily to inadequate radiography, with missed fractures occurring most frequently.
