Digital Radiography

The caring doctors at Tipton Ridge Veterinary Medical Center continually invest in the latest in veterinary technology for the care of your precious pet. Given that X-ray systems are one of the most important diagnostic tools for any veterinarian, Tipton Ridge offers advanced digital radiography imaging to our clients in Pulaski and the surrounding areas.

Our state-of-the-art system has numerous advantages over older systems requiring chemicals and development time. The digital system at Tipton Ridge produces sharp images within seconds, meaning your furry family member will receive treatment immediately if necessary. The radiographs taken by our system can also be contrasted, lightened or darkened as needed, eliminating the need for retakes that are often required with traditional chemical systems. The digital images on our system can also be emailed to specialist in the rare event a veterinary radiologist needs to review an x-ray, again making it faster to treat your pet if necessary. Finally, our digital radiography system is better for the environment as it does not require chemicals to process our images.

Digital imaging helps our experienced veterinarians discover many issues that may not be visible from the outside. With it, we can:
• Diagnose bone fractures
• Determine organ size
• Locate foreign objects
• Identify tumors
• Locate internal bleeding
• Detect fluid accumulation

Our experienced veterinarians utilize this technology for many other applications as well, so please give us a call if you feel your constant companion may need a diagnosis not listed above.
