Medical imaging is a process of creating high-quality imagesof the interior of the body for the diagnosis of various diseases. Medical imaging technologies are used by medical specialists and practitioners in the diagnostics of diseases in order to produce actual and visual representation of the structure and functions of organs.Medical imaging techniques include X-ray, computed radiography (CR), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, MRI, endoscopy, positron emission tomography (PET), and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). X-ray technology includes analog and digital X-ray. Oral X-ray machines refer to X-ray machines that are used for medical imaging via buccal cavity.Oral X-ray machines find applications in various end users such as hospitals, freestanding clinics, and equipment leasing companies .X-ray is a form of electromagnetic ionizing radiation, which is produced using X-ray machines. It is one of the best diagnostic imaging techniques,which help in producing high-resolution images with detailed internal structures of a human body, particularly the bones. X-ray facilitates in early diagnosis of a disease or serious medical injury. The extremely-short wavelengthsenable X-ray to penetrate materials that reflect or absorb ordinary light.Rise in imaging population and patients with chronic diseases drive growth of theX-ray market.Oral X-ray machinesproduce images using radiographic technique.Oral X-ray machines find application in diagnostic applications, therapeutic applications, cosmetic applications, and forensic applications.
