One of the most common and valuable medical diagnostic tools is radiography or x-rays. X-rays are highly useful for screening areas of the body that have contrasting tissue densities or when evaluating solid tissues. Rose City Veterinary Hospital is equipped to perform routine digital radiology services to identify many types of illness or injury when pets are sick or suffer a trauma. Radiology is also a useful tool for routine wellness screening.
X-rays can be used to detect a variety of ailments including arthritis, tumors and lung abnormalities including pneumonia, bladder and kidney stones. They are also used to evaluate bone damage, organ integrity and identify foreign objects that may have been ingested. Our veterinarians may recommend x-rays as a part of a diagnostic procedure if your pet is experiencing any health conditions or as preventive measure in a routine senior wellness examination.
