We utilize state of the art digital x-rays that render an image in seconds. These digital images make it very easy to share with other experts to assist in diagnosis and interpretation. If our Veterinarians have questions or concerns aobut your pet's radiographs, then we may ask to have them reviewed by a Board Certified Specialist (in Radiology). This process only takes hours! In an emergency situation, we can have the Specialist interpretation in less than 30 minutes.
Radiographs (or X-rays) are often essential in the evaluation of muscular-skeletal, heart, lung, gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. X-rays are a key tool that we utilize to rapidly diagnose many problems. They are a window to the inside of your pet. Some radiographs may require sedation to minimize the stress on your pet and make him/her more comfortable. If this is the case, we will speak with you before proceeding with sedation.
You may also go home with your pet's images on a CD should you wish to have a copy or we can simply email the images to you.
