Digital Radiology (X-ray) Radiography is a very important diagnostic aid in a modern veterinary clinic. Digital X-ray is an imaging tool that provides a non-invasive method of examining your dog or cat’s internal organs and internal systems, including muscular-skeletal, cardiopulmonary (heart and lungs), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. The image quality of a digital x-ray is much higher than a film x-ray and there is no time lost in processing the image. The digital images can be visualized within a few seconds following exposure, reducing the amount of time your dog or cat is away from you for the testing procedure and allowing us to diagnose and treat your pet rapidly. Digital radiology is environmentally friendly because there are no chemicals to contaminate water systems and it decreases radiation exposure to your pet as images can be manipulated via a computer for more detailed analysis.
