Radiographs, also known as X-rays, enable us to visualize the internal structures of your pet’s body and reveal intricate details that are not visible externally. Furthermore, X-rays are completely painless, safe, and non-invasive because radiography employs a very low dose of radiation, enabling young and pregnant animals to undergo X-rays.
With radiographs, we can evaluate the size, shape, and position of various organs, as well as the condition of the bones. Radiographs can detect changes in organ size that may indicate illnesses such as kidney, heart, or liver disease. Moreover, certain medical conditions, such as cancer or intestinal obstruction, can alter or distort the shape and position of organs. Radiographs are also employed to diagnose and manage a broad spectrum of conditions, including malignancies, fractures, arthritis, and some spinal and bladder diseases.
