Digital Radiography

Garden District Animal Hospital continually strives to offer our patients the latest in veterinary technology, and our advanced digital radiography (x-ray) system provides the sharpest and clearest images available. Our digital system has multiple advantages over older systems which require chemicals and time to develop radiographs. When our caring veterinarians take an x-ray of a pet, the image is available in seconds, saving valuable treatment time if necessary. Also, our system is environmentally friendly, as it does not require chemicals to process our radiographs. X-ray images are one of the most important diagnostic tools available for our veterinarians. When we see a sick patient, x rays are often recommended so our doctors can see inside the pet without surgery. Many disease states, illnesses, and issues can be safely and accurately diagnosed including:

  • Bone fractures
  • Locate obstructions or foreign body in the stomach
  • Tumor identification
  • Diagnose pneumonia
  • Identify infection
  • Organ evaluation, including the heart, kidneys, and lungs
  • Locate bladder stones
  • Diagnose hip dysplasia

 

This list is a sampling of the diagnostic capabilities of our digital x-ray unit. If you feel your pet may have an issue not listed here, please schedule a consultation with one of our veterinarians. The experience of our veterinarians and our state-of-the-art equipment make Garden District Animal Hospital the best choice for the life of your pet in the Baton Rouge area.
