Diagnostic X-ray Imaging (Radiography)
Radiography (also known as an x-ray) is an imaging tool that our veterinarians use to examine your dog or cat’s internal organs as well as their heart/lungs, abdominal organs (GI tract, bladder, etc), and musculoskeletal system. X-rays are one of the most commonly used diagnostic tools used for bone fractures, locating foreign objects within the body, and screening for certain types of cancers.
State of the Art Digital X-ray System
At Care Animal Hospital we use a next-generation digital x-ray machine. Digital x-rays provide many benefits over traditional films. Digital x-rays have a higher image quality and can be viewed almost instantaneously when taken. We also do not have to use harsh chemicals to develop the images and are able to email the images or put them on portable media like USB drives or CDs if necessary.
