Digital Radiology

Digital radiology (x-ray) is a valuable diagnostic tool that aids in our treatment of your pet. VCA West Suburban Veterinary Hospital was proud to be the first general practice in Chicago’s western suburbs to use this advanced technology.

Digital x-ray technology is faster and more efficient than traditional film x-rays resulting in less time on the x-ray table (and less discomfort) for your pet. Digital images are better quality than film x-rays and they can be saved to a disc or emailed to veterinary specialists, enabling us to perform immediate referral consultations when necessary. We partner with board-certified radiologists for consultations and can receive the results of a digital x-ray interpretation in as little as 20 minutes.
