Pet Digital Radiology
Digital x-rays assist in diagnosing illness & injury.
Digital radiology is the new conventional film x-ray. Digital x-rays allow us to better diagnose and treat sick and injured pets by providing us with high quality imaging results and reducing overall radiation exposure. They can capture digital images of both the body and teeth.
There are multiple benefits to choosing digital x-ray over conventional x-ray including:
- Images are more accurate and quicker to obtain
- Retakes are seldom required which limits radiation exposure
- Imaging results can be sent to other veterinarians and radiologists with ease
- Records can be stored electronically, so they won’t get damaged or lost
Using digital x-rays lets us provide our patients with superior care and supports our goal of practicing progressive, high quality medicine.
