Digital Radiology and Ultrasound
In modern culture it seems like virtually everything has gone digital, and your pet’s visit to the vet is no exception! Digital radiography, or “X-rays” are becoming more and more mainstream in veterinary medicine, and for good reason. This technology is benefiting pets, owners, and veterinarians everywhere! So what’s so great about digital radiographs?
First of all, they are fast and efficient. With traditional X-rays, an exposure was made and then an actual piece of film was processed with a series of chemicals in order to view the picture. This process was messy and took time. Sometimes the whole process was taken just to find out that the animal’s positioning was sub-optimal or the exposure settings inappropriate. With digital films the image literally pops up on a screen near the machine within seconds of taking the X-ray. Minor adjustments can be made with minimal effort, causing much less stress to the patient.
