Radiology

 

Radiography is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine.

 

A radiograph (sometimes called an 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 is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and 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. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body’s organs. The shape and position of organs can be altered or distorted by certain medical conditions, including intestinal blockage or cancer. Radiography can also be used to diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, some tumors, and a variety of other conditions.

 

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 state-of-the-art care with compassion and expertise.
