Digital Radiography

Home / Services/ Digital Radiography

Digital radiography is an extremely effective and essential diagnostic tool for veterinarians. Offered at Alamo Animal Clinic, digital radiography is painless, safe, non-invasive, and it provides a digital picture of the problem area quickly and without the need for numerous retakes. In the event of an accident or possible broken bones, digital radiology technology allows our veterinarian to diagnose your pet’s condition immediately and provide the proper treatment.

The images produced through this digital technique help us assess the status of injuries or diseases that may be affecting your pet. We use it to locate foreign objects, detect masses such as tumors, measure organ size for disease, diagnose pneumonia, discover pregnancies, bladder stones, chronic arthritis, and certain spinal cord diseases.

Digital radiography can provide images much faster and with greater clarity than traditional x-rays. The images also can be manipulated, enhanced, and contrasted, allowing our doctors to diagnose a condition more accurately. Additionally, we can share images instantly with board certified veterinary radiologists and specialists for consultation if required.
