Advanced Technology for Your Animal Companion
Digital radiographs, also known as x-rays, are an essential diagnostic tool for veterinarians. High-definition images such as these are useful in examining your pet’s bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity, and other parts of the body. Importantly, digital radiographs can identify problems that a physical examination may not, such as a broken bone or a tumor. X-rays also help us diagnose dental problems, identify heart disease, and locate an obstruction in your pet’s intestine or stomach. While highly useful on their own, x-rays are particularly helpful when used with other diagnostic procedures such as ultrasound. Use of multiple diagnostic tools improves our hospital’s ability to accurately diagnose and quickly treat your pet.
At Hill Country Animal Hospital we use digital radiography, an advanced technology that allows us to take images faster with less radiation exposure than traditional methods. Digital radiographs are also far more detailed than traditional x-rays and are easy to share electronically with our recommended specialists, who can offer timely second opinions. We take pride in using technology like digital radiography to protect your pet from disease and injury.
