Unlocking Insights: The Vital Role of Radiography in Veterinary Medicine

Radiography is a valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. As we continually strive to offer the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are pleased to offer radiology services to provide excellent care to our patients.

A radiograph (sometimes called an X-ray) is a type of photograph that looks inside the body and reveals information that may not be discernable from the outside. Radiography can be used to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, abdominal organs, and bones.

Painless, Safe, and Completely Non-Invasive

Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, using only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and the size, shape, and position of many of the body’s organs. The size of organs is important because some medical conditions—such as kidney, heart, or liver disease—can alter the size of these organs. The shape and position of organs can be altered or distorted by certain medical conditions, including intestinal blockage or cancer. Depending on their size and location, tumors can also sometimes be detected using radiography. Radiography can also diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and various other conditions.

Radiographs are an essential tool that can help us diagnose your pet correctly. Our radiology service is staffed by caring, skilled veterinary professionals who will provide excellent care with compassion and expertise.
