Advanced Pet Digital Radiology Services in Houston, TX

Pet digital X-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine, providing valuable information to help diagnose a range of medical conditions. X-rays for cats and dogs capture images of the pet’s body using a small amount of radiation, producing more precise and sharper images than traditional X-rays.

Digital X-Rays: Advancing Veterinary Diagnosis

Tanglewilde Veterinary Clinic strives to provide the best veterinary services available. We proudly offer advanced digital X-ray technology as an essential component of our in-house diagnostic services. Many medical conditions cause similar symptoms in pets, and digital X-rays (digital radiographs) help our veterinarians determine the exact cause of a patient’s illness without requiring invasive exploratory surgery.

What is a Radiograph?

A radiograph is an image produced of a pet’s internal structures (bones, organs, and other soft tissues) using high-energy X-rays. Veterinarians use radiographs to aid in the diagnosis of diseases and other medical conditions, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Musculoskeletal problems
  • Cancer, growths, and tumors
  • Heart disease
  • Injuries
  • Gastrointestinal diseases
  • Ingested objects
  • Dental disease

Benefits of Digital X-Rays

  • Speed: Digital X-rays offer faster results compared to traditional film X-rays, reducing the time pets need to remain still during the procedure.
  • Safety: With shorter exposure times, digital X-rays minimize your pet’s exposure to radiation, ensuring their safety.
  • Accuracy: Digital X-rays produce detailed images that can be manipulated to enhance visibility, leading to more accurate diagnoses.
  • Convenience: Digital X-ray images can be easily stored, shared, and transmitted to specialists for further evaluation, streamlining the diagnostic process.
