Digital Radiology

Digital Radiology

When your pet is injured, obtaining rapid x-ray results may be critical.  Our hospital is equipped with on-site digital radiology equipment.  This latest technology allows us to examine your dog or cat’s skeletal, organ, cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. This is a non-invasive procedure that does not require your pet to be under anesthesia and allows the veterinarian to get a better look at the conditions that may be affecting your pet.

The image quality of a digital x-ray is much higher than a film x-ray and can be visualized by us within a few seconds following exposure.  Because we are able to view the x-ray almost immediately we can diagnose and treat your pet rapidly.

When Digital Radiology is used:

  • To find foreign objects or materials within the body that may have been ingested
  • To diagnose fractures, bone and/or joint abnormalities, and various injuries
  • To screen for abnormalities within the heart, lungs, urinary, and digestive organs
  • To screen for some types of cancer

When your pet has x-rays taken at our facility, we will provide a digital copy of the x-rays for your primary veterinarian to review.
