X-Ray Scanning Services
Our X-ray scanning service is flexible, scalable and tailor-made to provide easy conversions of medical, veterinary and pipeline x-rays to a digital format. Whether you have a small collection of x-rays or a large archive collection in your department or clinic, we can digitise them to your required format such as DICOM, TIFF, PDF and JPG with a fast turn-around time.
Whether you work in the NHS or a private medical clinic, we can scan to your specific specifications. At Pearl Scan we can handle any size of x-ray ranging from 14" x 17" down to 44mm. We offer x-ray scanning and digitisation of X-ray films to digital image file formats which enables professionals to retain a secure digital archive copy as well as enjoying instant and easy access which cannot be achieved using a light box.
Advantages of x-ray scanning
There are many advantages to x-ray scanning. Here's an outline of some of the most beneficial:
- Productivity. X-ray scanning can vastly improve the productivity of your radiology department as well as that of doctors and nurses. Digital x-rays can be viewed virtually anywhere and at any time, giving you instant access for viewing and studying the x-rays anywhere, which can improve access without risking lives.
- Superior off-site diagnosis. Sometimes the opinion of a specialist is required for specific cases and they might not be onsite at that particular time. With x-ray scanning, they can be emailed or viewed remotely in order to get the all-important diagnosis.
- Space Saving. Space is at a premium, especially in places like hospitals. X-rays can take a huge amount of space to store but once you have scanned those x-rays to digital format, the originals can be disposed of or put in deep storage facility, leaving the space to be utilised more efficiently.
