Pet Digital Radiology
Imaging Technology Guides Efficient Treatment
Just like you, we care about your pet’s health and wellbeing. This is why we chose to equip our facility with the latest diagnostic tools modern veterinary science has to offer. Digital X-rays are vastly superior in quality compared to old traditional films. We can send a CD home with you or easily share the X-ray by email with referral hospitals if necessary. Utilizing digital X-ray enables our doctors to view and diagnose problems quickly. This non-invasive diagnostic procedure helps us to determine treatment options to restore your pet to better health.
Digital X-Rays Offer Clear Advantages
All our X-rays are digital, the latest standard for producing high-quality images. Digital X-ray machines offer two key benefits over traditional film X-ray:
- Immediacy—Results appear on the computer screen instantly. If needed, the images can also be transmitted electronically to a specialist for further evaluation.
- Decreased radiation exposure—Due to the speed, clarity and accuracy of digital X-rays, it reduces our need to retake films, decreasing your pet’s exposure to radiation.
Your Pet’s Experience During Digital X-rays
Many clients express concern about the X-rays causing stress for their pet. Sedation is seldom required and most patients tolerate this procedure very well. Occasionally, we will need to restrain your pet, but we move slowly and gently to ensure your pet feels comfortable.
Diagnostic tools, such as digital X-rays, ultrasound, EKGs, and labs, are all important to the swift and complete care of your pet. With fast and accurate testing to guide our treatment plan, we can help your pet return to health quickly.
