Another one of our diagnostic capabilities that we offer to our clients here at East Lincoln Animal Hospital is digital radiography. This technology is a diagnostic tool that uses x-ray sensors instead of traditional photographic film. The advantages of digital radiography are that it provides images to our veterinarians much faster and with greater clarity than traditional film x-rays.
These digital images can be manipulated, enhanced and contrasted, as well as viewed from different angles. This manipulation capability aids in diagnostic procedures since it allows our veterinarians to see exactly what he needs to see. It also lessens the need for retakes, and cuts down on the time between diagnosis and treatment. These digital images can easily be transferred and shared electronically if necessary. With digital radiography, our experienced veterinarians can locate broken bones, fluid buildup, tumors, view enlarged organs as well as the presence of pneumonia.
