Digital Radiology FAQ

vet-looking-at-xrayWhat is radiology used for?

Radiology refers to the interpretation of radiographic images, such as x-rays. Standard x-rays are excellent diagnostic tools for bone fractures or other conditions that affect your pet’s skeletal structure. Regular x-rays pass directly through less dense tissues like skin or organs and reflect off of solid objects such as bone. Our more sensitive digital equipment provides a clearer, more detailed picture of softer tissues and organs and can also show abnormalities in areas traditional x-rays do not. In addition to fractured or broken bones, some of the conditions digital radiology helps our doctor diagnose include:

  • Respiratory disease
  • Heart disorders
  • Chronic arthritis
  • Spinal cord diseases
  • Tumors
  • Kidney and bladder stones
  • Conditions involving the liver and other internal organs
  • Gastric dilatation volvulus
  • Cavities or cracked teeth
  • Gum abscess

Is digital radiology safe for my pet?

Yes, radiology is a safe, non-invasive diagnostic tool that can save your pet’s life. Digital x-rays deliver a very low dose of radiation, lower than traditional x-ray. It’s so low, in fact, that it has even been tested safe for pregnant females and very young animals. At Animal Emergency Centre, all of our veterinary diagnostic equipment is properly maintained, and diagnostic tests are administered only by qualified technicians.

What if my pet has an after-hours emergency?

In an emergency, a fast and accurate diagnosis can literally mean the difference between life and death. Our Studio City hospital is fully capable of providing full diagnostic testing after hours. One great advantage of digital radiology is its speed. Because there’s no need to wait for x-ray film to be developed, our vet gets an immediate picture of your pet’s condition and can begin treatment right away. Less time spent waiting for a treatment plan means less discomfort for your pet. And if your pet requires emergency surgery, faster, more accurate diagnostic testing leads to a more successful surgical outcome.

As a courtesy, we will be happy to email the digital images to your veterinarian or make a CD copy of the images for you.
