An x-ray or radiograph is a type of image that looks inside the body and might show details that would not be visible from the outside. Nearly every organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones, can be examined with radiography.
Radiography employs only extremely small amounts of radiation and is painless, safe, and totally non-invasive. Even pregnant women and very young pets can have radiography done because the required level of radiation exposure is so low. The size, form, and location of many of the body’s organs can all be determined by radiographs, as well as the condition of the bones. Organ size is crucial because some diseases, such as kidney, heart, or liver illness, can change the size of these organs. Certain medical diseases, such as intestinal blockage or cancer, can change or distort the form and location of organs. Depending on their size and location, tumours can occasionally also be found using radiography. In addition, radiography can be used to diagnose a wide range of other disorders, including bladder stones, broken bones, persistent arthritis, several diseases of the spinal cord, and many others.
The use of radiographs is a crucial technique that can aid in the accurate diagnosis of your pet. Our radiology department is staffed by compassionate, knowledgeable individuals who will deliver cutting-edge care with compassion and knowledge.
