Digital Radiology

Digital X-ray imaging is superior to the film imaging technology. The digital nature of the images allows our veterinarians to manipulate these images, zoom in on specific areas of interest, and detect even the smallest of fractures in a completely non-invasive fashion.

We routinely send the images through email to consult with specialists, and we can provide CD copies of the images for client records. We have also found that the advanced technology of digital X-ray allows us to reduce the amount of exposure to radiation that pets receive because we can take fewer images of a higher quality, allowing our veterinarians to more easily diagnose difficult cases.

Desert Inn Animal Hospital uses X-ray technology for many different diagnostic purposes including:

  • Dental radiographs
  • Detection of arthritis
  • Foreign object detection
  • Fractured bones
  • Pregnancy screening
  • Cancer screening
