At Forest Crossing Animal Hospital, we utilize advanced imaging technologies to offer the highest quality of diagnostic care for our patients. This includes digital radiology (X-rays that are digital rather than done on film), which makes for quicker evaluation and diagnosis.
Radiographs, or X-rays, use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the body to highlight objects within. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease.
Orthopedic radiographs require the pet to remain completely still to work correctly, necessitating sedation in many cases. Some specialized procedures may require anesthesia. The duration of sedation or anesthesia is usually short and patients recover quickly.
