Through the use of radiology (x-rays) and ultrasound our doctors are better able to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions affecting your pets. X-rays can often pinpoint the organ where a problem is occurring. They can aid in the diagnosis of joint issues such as fractures, and arthritic changes in the joints and bones. Gastrointestinal problems, bladder stones and heart/lung diseases can be diagnosed quickly and efficiently using x-rays.
We use digital radiographs instead of the traditional film radiographs.
There are many benefits for your pet by using digital equipment:
- Images can be sent directly to a specialist by email, this allows a faster response time for your pet's health issue.
- After an x-ray is taken the image can be further enhanced and contrasted to eliminate the need for more x-rays.
- Exposure to radiation is greatly reduced for your pet as fewer images are needed.
