Benefits of Digital Radiology
We pride ourselves in providing your pet with the highest quality digital radiography on the market! Because we use digital radiography, we are able to quickly produce high quality diagnostic images of your pet. Once the x-ray is taken it appears on the computer screen within seconds. By eliminating the use of traditional film we can quickly repeat shots, adjust angles, and send images to referral facilities or radiological specialists for further evaluation.
- Bones and Joints-X-rays are an important way to evaluate lameness and pain. They help us see fractures, inflamed joints, arthritis, and more
- Abdomen-Abdominal X-rays can help us diagnose issues related to GI upset, weight loss, or see if your pet has ingested a foreign object. Your pet’s doctor might even recommend X-rays if abnormalities are noted on bloodwork.
- Chest-If your pet is having difficulty breathing, chronic coughing, or has a heart murmur we may recommending chest X-rays to get a better look at the heart and lungs.
- Dental-We also include dental radiographs with our dental procedures. About 60% of each tooth is hidden below the gum line, so these special radiographs allow us to see hidden oral disease such as bone loss, abscesses and fractured roots.
