At St. Francis Veterinary Medical Center, we’re proud to provide our patients with safe and effective veterinary care aided by access to our complete suite of in-house diagnostics, including digital x-rays.
What Are Digital X-Rays?
Also called radiographs, x-rays refer to a type of diagnostic imaging that uses x-ray radiation to produce still pictures of a patient’s internal structures. X-rays can be used to evaluate bones, joints, organs, and other internal anatomy.
Unlike traditional radiographs that were produced using film and old-fashioned photo development, digital x-rays use a digital camera to produce a digital image.
The Benefits of Digital X-Rays
Digital x-rays offer a variety of benefits when compared to traditional, film-based x-rays. These benefits include:
How Veterinarians Use Digital X-Rays
We use digital x-rays in a variety of instances for diagnosing disease, evaluating injuries, preparing for surgery, screening for oral health problems, locating an ingested foreign object, and more. If we recommend x-rays for your pet, we’ll be here to answer any questions you might have about the process and your pet’s test results.
