Radiology (or X-rays) are a commonly used and powerful diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. The process includes an x-ray beam that passes through a pet’s body, creating a black and white digital image of their internal organs and bones. X-rays allow us to see bones, joints, internal organize size and position, fluid accumulations, gas pockets, anatomy abnormalities or any densities within the body.
Radiology allows for quick effective evaluation and collection of vital information for use in a medical diagnosis.
X-rays are available for interpretation within a couple of minutes after they are taken. At High Point Animal Hospital, we’ll arrange an appointment to review the images and information with you following the procedure.
We can also refer the services of a board certified radiologist, orthopedic surgeon, or an internal medicine specialist for advanced interpretation, should the need arise.
