Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. A major patient advantage of digital radiography is far less radiation can be used to produce an image that is superior to conventional radiography. This equates to up to 90% less radiation exposure for your pet, and our staff!
Other advantages include:
Time efficiency (bypassing chemical processing) and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images, enables digital x-rays to offer immediate image preview and availability resulting in a faster diagnosis for your pet which is especially important for pets under anesthesia.
The ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image (better image display = equals a more accurate diagnosis).
The convenience of emailing images to veterinary specialists allows quick communication and expert interpretation regarding your pet’s health within minutes of taking the radiographs.
The same diagnostic advantages of our main digital x-ray equipment is incorporated in our state-of-the-art digital dental x-ray unit. This special unit, located in our dental care suite, is used for the sole purpose of radiographing teeth. When performing dental procedures this equipment is invaluable in providing valuable and essential information on the state of your pet's health under the gum line.
