Radiographs (X-rays) can also tell us a lot about the structure of different parts of your pet’s body. To produce an image, X-ray beams are passed through your pet and are captured by a detector (digital or film) on the other side. X-rays are especially useful to show changes in bone, irregular shapes in the abdomen, or the presence of foreign objects. Common reasons we may recommend an X-ray include the occurrence of broken bones, suspected injuries, or to confirm a pregnancy.
One of the most important diagnostic tools at our disposal are digital X-rays. Digital technology allows us to examine and distribute images much more quickly and requires less radiation than conventional methods. Similar to the emergence of digital photography, the use of digital imaging is a significant advancement in veterinary care. We are proud to offer this service to our clients.
