Digital radiography has become an extremely effective and essential diagnostic tool for veterinarians because it is painless, safe, non-invasive, and it provides information about interior parts of the body quickly and without the need for numerous retakes.
At Partners for Pets Veterinary Hospital, digital radiography enables us to assess the status of injuries or diseases that may be affecting your pet. The images produced through this digital technique help our veterinarians diagnose fractures, locate foreign objects, detect masses such as tumors, measure organ size for disease, diagnose pneumonia, discover pregnancies, bladder stones, chronic arthritis, and certain spinal cord diseases.
Because digital radiography uses such low doses of radiation, even pregnant females and very young pets are safe undergoing this process. Another advantage of digital radiography is that it provides images much faster and with greater clarity than traditional x-rays. These digital images can be manipulated, enhanced, and contrasted, allowing our doctor to diagnose a condition more accurately. Additionally, the digital images may be shared instantly with board certified veterinary radiologists for consultation if required.
Serving pet owners with two locations in Montgomery and Pike Road, Alabama, Partners for Pets Veterinary Hospital can diagnose your pet’s condition using digital radiography and other diagnostic techniques quickly and accurately.
