Digital Radiology

Radiography refers to using X-rays to produce images of the internal structures of animals for diagnostic purposes. With x-rays, we can examine the skeletal system, lungs, heart size/silhouette, size and shape of the abdominal organs, and look for signs of disease like tumors, infection, obstruction, fractures and so much more.

Digital radiography takes X-rays literally within seconds and does not require the films to be developed like with traditional x-ray machines. The images are instantly uploaded to a computer where we can look at the images on a screen and easily enlarge views, zoom in on certain areas, take measurements, and more. We also can very easily take these images and send them to a board-certified radiologist for review if we feel like we need an expert opinion on what we’re looking at!
