Ballston Animal Hospital now offers digital whole-body and dental X-rays. Digital radiology (X-rays) helps us evaluate muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. We chose this technology because it benefits both the patient and the owner by:
- Producing high-resolution, diagnostic-quality images
- Reducing radiation exposure to pets and technicians
- Enhancing communication between doctor and pet owner by offering photo-quality images to share and discuss
We receive a high-quality image in less time than with a film-based X-ray system. The digital X-ray captures high-resolution images of your pet, available for immediate analysis by your veterinarian. They also provide a fast and accurate way to share images with specialists and referral centers, and are an environmentally friendly solution to film X-rays, which require the use of harsh chemicals.
