Digital Radiography

We employ digital radiography to provide our patients with an advanced, non-invasive diagnostic tool and to streamline the image-taking process and gather high quality images with a level of detail not afforded by standard film.

We also use digital technology for taking Dental radiographs.

We provide immediate in-house radiographic interpretation, with referral to an area radiologist when necessary. In special cases, we can utilize a telemedicine (online) service provided by a group of board-certified imaging specialists, greatly improving diagnostic turnaround time.

A digital system makes copies of images readily accessible to clients by request, on CDr or via e-mail. In the same way, images can be made available to a requesting referral hospital.

Additional Services

Additional digital radiography services we provide include capture and electronic submission of elbow and/or hip radiogarphs to the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) for evaluation and grading.
