Digital Radiography (DR or DX) is filmless x-ray images. In place of x-ray films, a device captures the image digitally and records the x-ray image as a digital file that is safely and easily accessed and stored. DR is efficient in capturing immediate x-ray images and has a wider dynamic range, which is more accurate to prevent over and under exposure. DR also has in-built image processing to enhance the overall display of the image as compared to conventional radiography.
PACS or Picture Archiving and Communication System replaced x-ray films with digital images. Films are only available in one place at a time and frequently result in delayed patient care if it is not immediately available to the physicians. With PACS, patient studies can be viewed from any computer from referring physicians and radiologists who have Digital Radiography. It also links the reports for imaging studies, which makes it more convenient to view images and the associated reports at the same time.

An electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) measures how well and fast the nerves can send electrical signals. Nerves control the muscles in the body by electrical signals (impulses), and these impulses make the muscles react in specific ways. However, nerve and muscle disorders cause the muscles to react in abnormal ways. Measuring the electrical activity in muscles and nerves can help diagnose related diseases. Therefore, EMG and NCV are often performed together to provide a comprehensive patient evaluation.
