At Clear Creek Animal Hospital, staying up-to-date on advanced medical technology ensures that your pet gets the best in veterinary care. We strongly believe in keeping your pet healthy throughout their life, and one of the ways we do that is by using digital radiology.
Digital radiology allows us to quickly diagnose internal problems in your pet and recommend immediate treatment. This non-invasive technology produces digital x-ray images in seconds and the pictures are extremely sharp due to their high resolution. In addition, the adjustable contrast feature is perfect for highlighting areas of concern.
Because digital radiology is so fast and efficient, our experienced vets are able to analyze the x-ray images and see what’s going on inside your pet in a short period of time. We can also easily share the diagnostic images with board-certified specialists to get an expert opinion if needed.
We use digital radiography to diagnose the following conditions:
- Bone breaks, sprains, or fractures
- Foreign bodies such as paper, toys, sticks, rocks
- Bladder stones
- Internal organ abnormalities in the heart, lungs, stomach and intestines
- Tumors or masses
- Dental disease
Another advantage of digital radiology is that it uses less radiation than the traditional method, so your pet benefits from reduced exposure and experiences less anxiety since it only takes a few seconds to get the x-ray images.
