My GF (The Doctor at Yale with a double MD hehe) says the digital x-rays are 10 times better than the old ones, for many reasons, one is image quality and ability to easily zoom into an area to more clearly see, second is speed, not waiting for development nor some intern to bring it up from radiology or another department if the patient has multiple things going on... She just pulls it up on any computer anywhere in the hospital. Heck I think she can pull it up at home...
I have seen digital x-rays, and their definition well exceeds film x-rays I have seen. I think at least part of it is the ability to sharpen the hell out of them, which would look awful on a photograph. Or maybe it's just enhancing contrast that does it.

I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
