Saint Joseph in Lexington Offers Kentucky’s First All-digital X-ray Imaging

Saint Joseph Heart Institute, Lexington, Ky., is the first hospital in the state to utilize an all-digital X-ray cardiovascular imaging system. By converting X-ray signals to digital images at the point of acquisition, the system captures information with minimal loss and distortion, providing the ability to view hard-to-see vessels and the devices used during procedures.
