We are pleased to provide digital radiography (X-Ray) technology for our furry patients. Radiographs are one of the most important diagnostic tools in Veterinary Medicine. They allow us to view the shape, size and location of organs inside your pet’s body. Radiographs are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions. X-rays are useful in examining your pet’s bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas of the body. An x-ray can detect bladder stones, a fractured bone, tumor, heart problem, and locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet’s stomach or intestine
Compared to x-rays produced by a traditional machine, the quality of digital radiographs is usually much better so fewer images are needed in order to make an accurate diagnosis. The advantages of having a fully digital radiograph machine are that it reduces radiation that pets receive, and it is safer to operate for the staff. The images produced are of high resolution that is able to be enlarged many times over to pinpoint the problem. Another major advantage is that they can be transmitted quickly by email to a specialist or can be saved to a disc and given to the client. The digital x-ray process is faster resulting in less time on the x-ray table and less stress for your pet.
