The ability to take quality veterinary radiographs (X-rays) has improved dramatically over the last several years. The greatest advancement in this field has been the digital x-ray. Not only is the digital image clearer than the older film version, but it is generated in a matter of seconds and available for review by a licensed veterinarian.
Ensuring that Little Creek Veterinary Hospital in Mandeville has the most advanced equipment and techniques has always been a top priority for our doctors. Providing precise, quality x-ray capabilities is another example of our commitment to excellence in pet healthcare.
X-rays are an extremely important diagnostic tool for veterinarians, aiding in locating internal injuries including fractures and foreign bodies, as well as tumor identification, uncovering upper respiratory infections, and determining organ size in the event of disease.
The digital x-ray unit at Little Creek Veterinary Hospital provides our veterinarians with sharp images that can be manipulated, enhanced, and shared with consulting specialists if necessary. Digital x-rays require fewer retakes, and the images are ready in seconds which all adds up to having the ability to diagnose your pet’s condition quickly and start treatment immediately if required.
