While many applications of high-performance CCD (HCCD) technology in medicine use CCDs to capture x-ray images directly, HCCD cameras also make excellent digitizers of x-ray film. A single image can be captured in much less time than it takes a linear scanner or traditional point-scanning densitometer. In addition, the exceptional quality of scientific CCD sensors delivers higher-quality image data than mass-market linear sensors that are run at very high scan rates.

One of the advantages of digital imaging is readily apparent in the ability to display both dim areas and bright areas simultaneously on the monitor
