Our modern veterinary facility is equipped with a radiology suite containing a digital x-ray unit. Digital radiography provides a high quality image that allows visualization of bones and soft tissue in great detail. After being taken, a digital radiograph can be enhanced, magnified and manipulated in a number of different ways allowing visualization of images in ways that are not possible with film x-ray. These images are captured on a computer and can be shown to a pet owner on any screen throughout the hospital. They can also be sent immediately to a specialist if needed or burned to a CD for future use. Since digital images require no “film processing”, the doctors can spend more time interpreting your pet’s results.
To avoid a blurry image, pets need to remain completely still while an xray is taken. In some cases, we may need to sedate your pet or use a short acting anesthesia.
If you have nay questions about our radiology service or what to expect during your pet’s procedure, please don’t hesitate to ask.
