At Goodwin Animal Hospital, we specialize in digital radiology, the most advanced form of x-ray technology. Digital radiology for pets has many advantages over the traditional method. In terms of looking inside the body for signs of disease, few procedures are as informative, as quick or as non-invasive as an X-ray.
With our state of the art digital radiology system, we can have detailed X-ray images of your pet in a matter of seconds. Digital X-rays are faster than traditional diagnostic imaging methods and also return images of extremely high resolution and detail to improve diagnostic evaluation. This means fewer retakes and less exposure to harmful radiation for your pet. A digital system does not require the chemicals needed to process traditional radiographs.
When used in tandem with other diagnostic procedures like ultrasound or endoscopy, X-rays can provide an accurate and quick picture of your pet’s health. This makes diagnosis and treatment faster and easier for your pet and for your veterinarian.
Finally, if a board-certified radiologist needs to review the images, they can easily be emailed to a remote specialist for immediate analysis, which speeds of diagnostic times considerably. If you have any questions regarding our state of the art radiology diagnostic system, please feel free to contact our animal hospital in Montgomery, Alabama.
