New Radiology Machine!
Radiography is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As we continually strive to offer the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are pleased to announce that we have just invested over $40,000 in the newest technology, offering capabilities such as: immediate results, better diagnostic capabilities, magnifying the images without any loss of detail and email results anywhere immediately (even to owners of the pets)!
Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography. A radiograph(x-ray) is a type of photograph that can look inside the body and reveal information that may not be discernable from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate the size of any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones. The size of organs is important because some medical conditions (such as kidney, heart, or liver disease) can alter the size of these organs. The shape and position of organs can be altered or distorted by certain medical conditions, including intestinal blockage or cancer.
Radiographs are an important tool that can help us make a correct diagnosis for your pet. Our radiology service is staffed by caring, skilled professionals who will provide industry leading care and expertise.
