Pet Digital Radiology
Digital x-rays assist in diagnosing illness & injury.
Digital x-rays are a safe, non-invasive method to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, abdomen, and even bones. Digital x-rays can be used to diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and a variety of other conditions. The patient rarely needs sedation but may depending on the number of pictures required.
There are multiple benefits to choosing digital x-ray over conventional x-ray including:
- Images are more accurate and quicker to obtain
- Retakes are seldom required which limits radiation exposure
- Imaging results can be sent to other veterinarians and radiologists with ease
- Records can be stored electronically, so they won’t get damaged or lost
Using digital x-rays lets us provide our patients with superior care and supports our goal of practicing progressive, high quality medicine.
