Pet Digital Radiographs
in Rolling Meadows, IL
Arlington Park Veterinary Hospital is equipped with digital radiography providing the best possible radiographic studies of your pet.
We can now modify the digital images that we obtain from a pet’s systems to understand what’s wrong, thanks to advancements in digital x-ray technology. This has made it possible for us to find things like hairline fractures and previously invisible orthopedic disorders. Specialists who consult with us on challenging cases receive access to these digital photographs.
The use of radiology (x-rays) to examine a pet’s bones, digestive system (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory system (lungs), heart, and the genitourinary system often yields important information (bladder, prostate). It can be used independently or in conjunction with other diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the precise source of a problem, rule out potential issues, or provide a list of potential causes for a pet’s condition.
We have invested in a cutting-edge, premium digital veterinary x-ray system because we think pets in the Arlington region deserve the greatest treatment. The doctors at Arlington Park Veterinary Hospital can diagnose a wide range of medical issues with digital radiographs more quickly and accurately than they can with traditional x-rays. We are able to quickly take extremely thorough x-rays, modify them to get a closer look at your pet’s bones and internal organs, and then show you those images on a computer.
The advantages of digital radiology
- Digital x-rays can be stored on servers and discs.
- When a second opinion or additional diagnosis is required, images can be immediately transmitted to specialists through email or sent to you.
- Because fewer photos need to be taken, your pet spends less time on the x-ray table.
- The use of harmful chemicals in the film development process is no longer necessary thanks to digital x-rays, lowering the danger of exposure for both our workers and the environment.
