x-ray diagnostics

Radiography is a helpful tool for diagnosing conditions of the musculoskeletal system. The x-rays allow a trained technician to view the inner workings of the body by transmitting waves. The waves move through the body and some bounce back to be picked up by the machine. The distribution of the waves through the body then creates an image representative of the internal structures, bones, and cartilage.

X-rays can diagnose conditions such as bone fractures, structural abnormalities, tumors, foreign body ingestion, and more.

Our practice is able to provide clients with the most up-to-date form of this technology digital x-rays. Unlike traditional film x-rays, digital x-rays can be stored on a computer and sent electronically with ease. They also take significantly less time to create, which means the pet is exposed to less radiation, and they do not have to be kept still for as long.

The quality of images provided by digital x-ray devices is also superior to the comparatively grainy and unrefined images produced by film x-rays.

Using the most advanced technology possible helps our veterinarians to make accurate and precise diagnoses. And even more important than the technology is the expertise of the professional deciphering them. Our veterinarians are highly trained and experienced in radiology, and will use their years of experience to make the most scientific and accurate conclusions available.
