Digital radiography has become an extremely effective and essential diagnostic tool for veterinarians because it is painless, safe, non-invasive, and it provides information about interior parts of the body quickly and without the need for numerous retakes.
At Danner Veterinary Hospital, our digital radiography unit enables us to assess the status of injuries or diseases that may be affecting your pet. The images produced through this digital technique help Dr. Danner diagnose fractures, locate foreign objects, detect masses such as tumors, measure organ size for disease, diagnose pneumonia and congestive heart failure, discover pregnancies, bladder stones, chronic arthritis, and certain spinal cord diseases. Our digital dental radiography allows our experienced doctor to check for tooth fractures and oral tumors as well.
Because digital radiography uses such low doses of radiation, and the level of radiation exposure is so low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography. Another advantage of digital radiography is that it provides images much faster and with greater clarity than traditional x-rays. Our Cuattro digital radiography unit let’s us manipulate, enhance and contrast areas within the images which also makes it possible for us to look at density and/or thickness peculiarities. Almost as effective as an ultrasound, this special machine can diagnose a condition more accurately. Additionally, we can share the digital images instantly with board certified veterinary radiologists and specialists for consultation if required.
