DDR Dynamic Digital Radiography
DDR Dynamic Digital Radiography

DDR is X-ray that moves!

Dynamic Digital Radiology (DDR) cineradiography is performed on regular X-ray equipment, through a series of individual digital images acquired at high speed and low dose, capturing up to 20 seconds of movement in a single exam.

The resulting images can be looped to observe motion of anatomical structures or they can be enhanced, quantified, reprocessed and replayed at fast to slow motion, as well as one frame at a time.

Advantage of X-ray that moves

Fast Exam

     Performed in less than a minute by radiology staff without

     the need for physician presence.

Low Dose Radiation

     Radiation of a 20 second exam is equivalent to two

     standard X-rays, or 10 days in the sun.

Convenient & Versatile

     Performs all standard X-rays, and images are taken   

     standing, seated or on a table.

DDR use in Orthopedics

• View the dynamic relationship of bones and soft tissue

• Examine joints and structures at rest and in full motion

• Analyze biomechanics and musculoskeletal injury, such as whiplash

• Perform exams in weight-bearing positions

• Postoperative evaluation of movement (knee, wrist, spinal fusion etc.)

• Treatment follow-up positions

• Postoperative evaluation

DDR use in Pulmonology

• Determine causes of dyspnea (shortness of breath)

• Dynamically assess bronchiectasis and pulmonary hypertension

• Differentiate restrictive versus obstructive lung disease

• Observe the interactions of lung, muscle, bone, heart and nerve

• Diaphragm excursion, respiratory effort and more
