Computerised Digital X-ray added to our Diagnostic toolset
We are pleased to announce the addition of state-of-the-art digital radiography equipment at each of our clinics. Radiography (x-ray) is a essential diagnostic tool that allows us to evaluate soft-tissue and boney structures. Our new digital x-ray equipment reduces the turnaround for radiographs which allows us to more quickly diagnose problems and allows for a more rapid treatment response.
Our new system benefits your pet by providing improved diagnostic capacity with better imaging, enlargement capabilities and computer enhancements such as measurement and notation. It benefits our staff by providing increased safety! The new system works to minimise exposure time which reduces radiation to your pets and our staff. By applying digital algorithms to the radiographs we can achieve a perfect image on the first take. Did we mention it's also faster - rendering an image in 6 seconds?
The new system is also better for the environment. We are aware of the clinic’s footprint on the environment and with the installation of the digital x-ray equipment, we will no longer need to use the harmful chemicals associated with standard x-ray development.
By converting to digital x-ray we are also able to provide our clients with CD copies of their pet's x-rays or have our visiting Radiologist review the x-rays, either during one of his regular visits to our clinic or electronically for immediate interpretation when critical.
Next time your pet is in need of x-rays - feel free to ask us for a copy. We love demonstrating the benefits and capabilities of our new digital x-ray equipment. This new equipment is just another step in our quest to ensure your pet is always in safe hands at Macarthur Veterinary Group.
