Digital Radiology (X-Rays)
X-rays are a common imaging tool we use to examine your dog or cat’s organs and internal systems. At Oyster Bay Animal Hospital, we can use digital radiology to perform dental x-rays; find foreign objects and materials within the body that have been ingested; diagnose fractures, bone and joint abnormalities, and other injuries; screen for abnormalities in the heart, lungs, urinary, and digestive organs as well as screen for certain types of cancer.
With digital radiology there are a number of benefits compared to traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays have a higher image quality than film x-rays, making it much easier to view and interpret. These images are instantly available to our veterinarians, which means a faster diagnosis and less time spent away from your pet!
