Through our continuous efforts to provide the optimal care for your pet, Levan Road Veterinary Hospital is utilizing Digital Radiography.
Digital Radiography is an innovative way to provide X-ray images of your pet’s body to better diagnose potential health problems. It has many advantages over conventional X-rays including:
- Greatly improved imaging with the ability to computer enhance and magnify images with superior detail. We are also able to take measurements and make notations on the image.
- Reduced exposure times which means less radiation exposure to the pet and our staff. Also, because the image can be produced in less than 3 seconds, the need for sedation or anesthesia sometimes required for adequate positioning and technique with conventional X-ray can be reduced.
- Because there are no chemicals or film waste involved, it is better for the environment.
- The X-Ray images can be easily sent via computer to consulting specialists for further examination and review. We can also burn the images on a CD for you to take with you.
We feel that this new technology will allow us to continue to provide the best care for your pet companion.
