Digital radiography is used to produce images of bony structures. The digital images can be viewed at the stable, allowing for quick, on-site assessment of problems. The ability to manipulate the images on the computer and enhance specific regions of the image allows for better visualization of the problem areas. Images can be burned to a CD, or emailed to a client or another veterinarian, as we often do for pre-purchase examinations.
Digital ultrasound further complements our lameness diagnostic capabilities, providing our veterinarians with detailed images of soft tissue structures, such as tendons and ligaments. Ultrasound may also be used to visualize some internal organs in the chest and abdomen.
