The Mr. Can Veterinary Clinic regards the use of digital radiography technology as a critical tool in modern diagnostic procedures. The veterinary radiology, which are commonly known as digital X-rays, are used to evaluate injuries and conditions that require more than an external examination. The radiology team provides us with a non-evasive way of looking at your pet's internal physiology so that we can provide a more complete and accurate diagnosis. Veterinary Radiology uses digital X-rays to detect bone fractures, bladder stones and tumors, soft tissue problems (those related to the heart, stomach, intestines, reproductive and urinary systems), as well as to locate ingested foreign objects, such as toys or stones.
Proper use of veterinary radiology
The imaging procedure is completely painless and can be performed on calm, cooperative pets without sedation. Your vet may administer a sedative or general anesthesia in cases where a dog or cat is having trouble fully relaxing naturally.
You may need to leave your pet for the day if X-rays are needed. However, we can often take rveterinary adiology immediately and have the information we need in urgent situations.
This digital procedure is a high-quality, environmentally friendly alternative to analog X-ray imaging in veterinary medicine.
Benefits of veterinary radiology.
- Immediate Results With digital x-rays, no film processing time or effort is required, saving veterinarians the tedious task. This means immediate results, faster diagnoses, and more X-rays - not only benefits for vets, but anxious owners too!
- High level of precision Digital X-ray technology produces the best quality images that are used to achieve accurate test results without multiple repetitions. The higher latitude of the machine provides a little more "room to maneuver", allowing adjustments to the exposure to be made on the computer after the scan is performed.
- Increased comfort for pets Digital X-rays are performed quickly, allowing patients to enter and exit the procedure without multiple attempts or repositioning. This reduces stress for pets, especially those that tend to be nervous.
- Reduced cost Digital X-ray machines often pay for themselves by taking film, chemical and maintenance costs out of the budget.
- Ease of Communication Between Veterinarians Today, cloud storage places digital X-rays at the fingertips of veterinarians, making it easier than ever to share results and get second opinions. Digital X-rays stored outside the office are also safer in the event of a fire or other natural disaster.
At Mr. Can we pride ourselves on offering quality digital images, however it is important that you know, as the owner, that your veterinarian will discuss this with you prior to performing this procedure.
