Sometimes, an external exam simply does not provide all the information a veterinarian needs to determine the overall health of your pet.
An important diagnostic tool available at Miller Animal Hospital, digital radiography can be extremely beneficial in helping the veterinarian locate broken bones, objects your pet may have swallowed, fluid buildup, tumors, enlarged organs, and the presence of pneumonia.
The advantage of digital radiography is that it provides images to the veterinarian much faster and with greater clarity than traditional x-ray methods that require the processing of films. Additionally, these digital images can be manipulated, enhanced and contrasted, as well as viewed from different angles. This manipulation aids in diagnostic procedures since it allows the doctor to see exactly what she needs to see.
Digital radiography is becoming the standard of care for progressive veterinary hospitals, and it allows our doctors to make immediate decisions for the health of your pet.
