Digital Imaging

 Digital radiography provides greater image detail and resolution than conventional x-ray machines. It allows the image to be adjusted after acquisition for enhancement of different tissue densities. Because of the high quality images it takes on the first try, there is less re-positioning and handling, leading to less stress on your pet! Less handling time also decreases the exposure of radiation on your pet. 

 

The image on the right is of an abdomen using digital radiography compared to the conventional x-ray imaging seen on the left.
