Pet Digital Radiography in
Using x-ray technology, our staff can see a variety of issues, such as broken bones,
foreign objects, organ size, and even cancer tumors.
Animal Medical Center of Charlottesville strives to provide exceptional service through their personal interactions with clients as well as providing state-of-the-art equipment for treating animals. Diagnostics are very important for our veterinarians when treating animals because, unlike people, animals cannot tell us where it hurts or how much it hurts.
Using x-ray technology, our staff can see a variety of issues, such as broken bones, foreign objects, organ size, and even cancer tumors. X-rays are often thought of as being oversized black films placed in front of a bright light and appearing fuzzy to the untrained eye.
These days more and more practices are moving towards digital x-ray technology. This means the veterinarian is able to view the images on a computer and zoom in on small areas or compare other films easily. In some cases where a consult is needed from a specialist, we can email the x-ray images to them for instant opinions.
