Montgomery AL Advanced Diagnostic Options for Pets: Digital X-Rays for Medical & Dental Care
In diagnosing illnesses or injuries hidden from the eye, veterinary X-rays are widely used for their rapid results and low cost. At Carriage Hills Animal Hospital, we offer the finest X-ray technology available combined with the skill of experienced professionals for excellence in diagnostic results.
Digital X-Ray Technology
We offer our patients the latest in X-ray technology: digital X-rays. This type of imaging digitizes the information and you see a very detailed X-ray on a computer screen. This allows us to zoom in or out, isolate specific areas for detail, or even share images with board-certified veterinary specialists.
Uses for Veterinary Radiology
Veterinary radiology allows us to evaluate the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems of your pets. Correct diagnosis involves proper use of equipment and expert interpretation of diagnostic results.
We use many radiographic techniques to evaluate medical problems, such as barium series and contrast cystograms. Digital X-rays are excellent for identifying the extent of injuries or for tracking the healing progress in a broken bone. In addition, we use digital radiographs in our dental evaluations to obtain the detailed view necessary for identifying developing problems in the teeth or beneath the gum line.
Benefits of Digital Technology
Modern digital X-rays produce images that are clearer, offer computer enhancement options, and expose your companion animal to very small doses of radiation, harmless to your pet if not abused. This digital technology also provides the ability to share images with specialists outside of our hospital, for consultation and second opinions. This advantage eliminates the need to transport your pet to many veterinary professionals at various locations, reducing stress and enhancing diagnostic accuracy.
