Computerized Radiography

Radiology Digital radiographs (X-rays) are extremely helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions. X-rays are useful in examining your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity and other areas of the body. An X-ray can spot a fractured bone, detect tumors, help with the diagnosis of heartworm disease or locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet's intestine or stomach. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures like ultrasound, digital X-rays can accurately diagnose problems, making treatment faster and easier for your pet and your veterinarian.

In order to provide your pet with the best medical care, Brookfield Veterinary Hospital uses the latest in digital radiology equipment as part of your pet’s diagnostic care. Digital radiographic images are far more detailed and offer a range of features that enhance your veterinarian’s ability to make an accurate diagnosis. Because our radiographs are digital, we are also able to easily submit them electronically to a board certified radiologist for timely second opinions.
