Radiography (x-rays) reveals information to our team that may not be easily detected on physical exam. At Dunwoody Animal Medical Center, we pride ourselves in using the latest state-of-the-art digital radiography. Our newer more advanced systems allow us to use a much lower dose of radiation as well, enhancing patient and operator safety. X-rays can be used to evaluate almost any organ in the body, including the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs, as well as the bones.
We can use it to diagnose many common pet ailments, such as bladder stones, broken bones, arthritis, some spinal cord diseases and injuries, and a wide variety of other conditions. Radiography is safe, painless, and completely non-invasive. Most pets won't need sedation for an x-ray either, since the procedure requires them to be still for a small amount of time.
