Pet Digital Radiology
Digital x-rays assist in diagnosing illness & injury.
Digital X-rays at Independence allow our veterinarians to take images of the bones and internal organs. There are many reasons why we might recommend an X-ray: suspected injuries from a trauma, evaluation of a broken bone, or looking for a foreign object that a patient swallowed. Digital X-ray is very precise and allows for magnification and adjustment of the film to zero in on the area of disease or injury.
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.
