Sawnee Animal Hospital is equipped hospital with digital radiology. Digital x-rays are the most common imaging tool we use to aid us in diagnosing your pet. Digital X-rays allow us to visualize your pet’s internal organs and internal systems, such as their heart, lungs, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems, as well as their bone structure. When your pet has a digital x-ray, it is a non-invasive procedure and anesthesia for your pet is normally not required. The images from digital x-rays are high quality and produce a much higher resolution image when compared to film X-rays. Your pet will experience less radiation exposure with digital technology than with traditional film x-ray technology.
Uses for Digital Radiology:
Digital Dental Radiology
Digital radiography gives us a very accurate visual image of the internal anatomy of your pet's teeth along with the roots and surrounding bone. This allows us to diagnose problems that may be present in the tooth roots and jawbone areas that may need advanced treatment. This important technology allows us to treat dental problems that would have been impossible to diagnose without the use of digital dental x-rays, including enamel defects and teeth fractures beneath the gum line.
