Radiography is an important diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. X-Rays (radiographs) are the electromagnetic waves that penetrate tissue. The X-Rays then are captured on a special computer plate. The computer makes a radiograph much the same way your digital camera takes a photograph. X-Rays help the vet examine your pet for injury or disease. They show bones, heart, lungs and other internal organs. Our radiographic studies are digital, which makes taking your pet’s picture quick and painless.
There are a variety of conditions that can be diagnosed using radiography:
Bladder and kidney stones
Egg-bound birds and reptiles
Number of puppies and kittens in a litter
