While modern technology is no substitute for a caring veterinary professional, there are many tools we use to help us to diagnose and treat our patients. Cherokee Trail Veterinary Hospital uses the most advanced diagnostic imaging technology to support our patients when they need it the most.
Modern Digital X-ray Technology
In much the same way that digital cameras have revolutionized photography, digital technology has changed the face of radiology. We can now get better quality X-rays and use less radiation at the same time, providing a safer, more effective process.
Instead of traditional X-ray film, there is a sensor to detect X-rays and convert them into diagnostic images almost immediately. No need for a dark room or film developing chemicals anymore. Additionally, digital X-rays can be copied onto a CD or emailed to a specialist for consultation.
