Digital Radiography

Shelby Center Hospital for Animals has recently invested in new, innovative technology for the benefit of your pet. Digital radiographs are one of the more important updates, and our veterinarians are excited to offer this advanced form of x-ray system for your dog or cat. Our new system eliminates time spent developing film, meaning one of our caring doctors can examine an x-ray image of your pet in a matter of seconds and begin treatment as necessary.

Another key advantage to digital radiography is that images can be emailed to board-certified radiologists if needed. This means if your pet has a serious injury or a complicated issue requiring additional consultation, our doctors can review the images within minutes with a veterinary radiologist.

Digital x-ray technology also eliminates most retakes, usually needed when a pet moves on the table. The x-ray imaging at our clinic is so incredibly clear that retakes are not often needed, even if your pet moves during the procedure. Less exposure to x-ray technology also means your pet is minimally exposed to any radiation. Finally, our digital x-ray system keeps our clinic “green” as there are no chemicals associated with the radiology system at Shelby Center Hospital for Animals.
