I had the same concern regarding digital x-rays cost! In January 2009, we purchased a A2D2 Digital System. I have never been happier with my purchase. It has made my practice extremely efficient. The patients are impressed with the digital images, and now I am able to email, print, measure angles, burn DVD’s for the physicians and patients. No more storage problems or searching for lost films. Great support from this company. Don’t think twice about this purchase-DO IT!!
