Increasingly orthopaedic departments are using digital radiology and imaging systems. We review the technical features of a digital radiology system for the orthopaedic surgeon. The pros and cons of digital and computed radiology are discussed. Hardware and software requirements for storage, retrieval, manipulation, and display of digital images are reviewed. The potential benefits to the clinician and the patient are outlined.
