Digital Imaging at the Animal Hospital of Sullivan County in Ferndale
At Animal Hospital of Sullivan County, we offer digital imaging as one of our many diagnostic services. If your pet is in need of x-rays, our team is here to help. Using only the latest in veterinary technology, we're able to obtain a clear, high-quality image for the most confident diagnostics.
Benefits of Digital Imaging for Your Pet's Health
When it comes to X-rays, there are essentially two methods available. Traditional X-rays used film, which needs to be developed after taking the images. As a result, it can take some time for results to come back, and the quality of the image can be hit-or-miss. In our office, however, we have access to digital imaging for our X-rays. This method does not require the development of film and instead allows our veterinary team to see digital images as soon as X-rays are taken, so there is practically no wait time. Furthermore, because the images are digital, it is easy for our team to zoom in where necessary. And of course, the quality of the images is much better than with traditional film.
Specifically, our digital radiology services can be used to diagnose any number of medical problems that would otherwise be difficult to spot. For example, if your pet has a hairline bone fracture or a broken bone, a digital X-ray allows us to see the exact location of the fracture or break, which ensures proper treatment. X-rays can also be used to spot blockages in the digestive system, tumors/growths, and potential problems with your pet's organs.
We also have the capability of having a board certified radiologist review our x-rays at the click of a button. We generally will have a specialized report in 24 hours or less if needed.
If your pet is in need of X-rays or if your pet is displaying symptoms of an underlying medical problem, schedule an appointment with our team at the Animal Hospital of Sullivan County. You can reach us by calling (845) 292-6711. We are ready to serve you and your pet!
