Pet Digital Radiology
Digital x-rays assist in diagnosing illness & injury.
When we need to figure out what’s wrong with your pet, we routinely use x-rays to help identify the cause of the problem, rule out possible problems, or provide a list of possible causes. We may also use x-rays during a wellness exam to diagnose potential problems before they become serious.
We are proud to offer digital radiology (x-rays that are captured digitally rather than on film). This state-of-the-art technology allows us to provide you with a quicker diagnosis for your pet. Plus, it uses less radiation than traditional x-rays.
To avoid a blurry image, pets need to remain completely still while an x-ray is taken. In some cases, we may need to sedate your pet or use short-acting general anesthesia.
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.
