Hometown Veterinary Hospital recently added a digital radiography (x-ray) system to provide our clients with the most advanced veterinary care available. Our new system eliminates film-developing time, meaning one of our experienced doctors can examine an x-ray image of your pet in a matter of seconds, and begin treatment immediately if necessary. The x-ray images produced by our cutting-edge unit can be enhanced and contrasted, generally eliminating any need for retakes, saving valuable treatment time. Another key advantage to digital radiography is that images can be emailed to board-certified radiologists if needed. If your pet has a severe injury or a complicated issue requiring additional consultation, our doctors can review the images within minutes with a veterinary specialist.
What are some issues that can be diagnosed using a digital x-ray?
Bone fractures are a commonly diagnosed using our digital x-ray, but our doctors also can also diagnose and locate the following complications:
- Organ evaluation, including the heart, kidneys, and lungs
- Obstruction or foreign body in the stomach
- Tumor identification
- Identify infection
