The Veterinary Center of East Northport has invested in the latest veterinary digital radiology machine that takes high-quality, detailed radiographs (X-rays) of your pet. Digital X-rays produce high-quality, accurate images that result in faster, more accurate and and less-stressful diagnosis of your pet’s condition.
Radiographs are one of the most important diagnostic tools in veterinary medicine. High-quality, detailed X-rays are useful in identifying the location of fractures, pinpointing the size and location of tumors and growths, detecting signs of heart disease and more.
Digital radiology has many benefits for your pet, you and our staff. Our sophisticated digital x-ray equipment produces highly-detailed images that allow our veterinarians to make a more rapid and accurate diagnosis. Because digital X-ray images can be saved on a computer, they can be transmitted quickly by email to outside specialists if a referral or second opinion were necessary. The images can also be saved to a disc and given to you. Digital X-rays are easier and faster to process than traditional film X-rays, resulting in less time on the X-ray table (and less stress) for your pet. The harsh chemicals once necessary for developing X-rays are not needed for digital X-rays, reducing potential harm to our staff and the environment.
