Radiographic imaging (x-rays) is a quick and effective method for looking inside the body to observe injuries or other forms of damage that may not be apparent in an external inspection. Pet x-ray imaging is especially helpful for spotting problems such as dental deterioration, fractures, bladder/kidney stones and ingested foreign objects.
Like just about everything else in modern culture, veterinary medicine is going digital. Digital X-rays are fast, efficient and highly accurate. In just seconds, vets can have a real-time internal image, instead of waiting for the film to be processed in a traditional X-ray. Due to the speed, minor adjustments to pets can be done in order to avoid suboptimal positioning and also to exposure settings. Digital X-rays produce much more detailed images and give vets much more information for an accurate diagnosis. Digitized images can be enhanced with zoom in, contrasts and take measurements. If needed, digital X-rays can be sent remotely to a specialist.
Dental Radiographic Imaging
Many veterinarians use digital radiography to evaluate pet oral health. Digital dental radiography is an important tool in assessing the health of your pet’s mouth. Digital dental X-rays can expose painful lesions, tooth fractures, bone tumors, nasal cavity disease, periodontal disease and much more. Early detection is the key to maintaining the overall health and well-being of your loyal companion, and digital radiography takes veterinary care to a whole new level.
