Veterinary Digital X-Rays/Radiography
After your pet has an initial wellness exam, your veterinarian may need to take a closer look at what may be troubling your pet. Veterinary digital X-rays allow our veterinarians to see immediate and detailed images of internal organs, tissue, and bone beneath your pet’s skin.
Why your veterinarian may request an X-ray exam:
- Diagnose broken bones and muscle disorders
- View size, shape, and placement of organs
- Examine tumors and other areas of interest
- Abdominal X-rays
- Chest X-rays
- Dental X-rays
- Spinal X-rays
At Metrovet, we chose a state-of-the-art digital Veterinary X-ray machine by Summit Innovet that is built locally in Chicago. Using this technology, we can diagnose a wide range of medical conditions quickly and accurately. These images are displayed on a computer and can be saved for your home medical records or emailed between veterinary specialists. Digital X-rays also eliminate the need for toxic developing chemicals decreasing the risk of exposure to our veterinarians and your pet.
Our professional staff is committed to providing your pet with quality care. Based on your veterinarian’s recommendations, he may want to pursue additional diagnostic testing such as ultrasound, CT, or MRI.
