Radiographs (X-rays) are an imperative diagnostic tool within all types of medicine, especially in the veterinary field, where our patients cannot verbalize when something is bothering them. Radiographic technology has significantly advanced over the past few years, and we are proud to offer digital radiographs as a leading part of our diagnostic imaging.
Digital radiographs take an image of a certain part of your pet’s body. The X-rays are passed through your pet’s body and are absorbed at different degrees by different radiographic materials, producing a digital image. Radiographs are a helpful tool when diagnosing many different conditions as well as the heart, lungs, stomach organs, and skeletal system.
