Digital Radiology

Digital Radiology

Digital radiology has become an extremely effective and essential diagnostic tool for veterinarians because it is painless, safe, and noninvasive. It provides information about interior parts of the body quickly and without the need for numerous retakes, ensuring a quicker, more comfortable experience for your pet.

At Walton Way Veterinary Clinic, digital radiography enables us to assess the status of injuries or diseases affecting your pet. The images produced through this digital technique help our veterinarians diagnose fractures, 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. Our digital dental radiography allows our experienced doctors to check for tooth fractures, oral tumors, and other dental issues, ensuring comprehensive care for your pet’s dental health.

Safe, Fast, & State-of-the-Art

Because digital radiography uses such low doses of radiation the level of radiation exposure is minimal. Even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography without any adverse effects. Another advantage of digital radiography is that it provides images much faster and more clarity than traditional film X-rays. These digital images can be manipulated, enhanced, and contrasted, allowing our doctor to diagnose a condition more accurately. Additionally, the digital images may be shared instantly with board-certified veterinary radiologists for consultation if required, ensuring that your pet receives the best possible care and expertise.

Our pets can’t tell us what’s wrong or where it hurts, which is why fast, quality radiographs are essential. Ask us for more information about our digital radiology equipment today!
