This is concrete walled with lead lined doors making it a radiation-proofed room. It is equipped with a high power x-ray machine that performs very accurate exposures with the minimum amount of radiation required.
We have upgraded our X-ray facilities to a digital system so that much clearer images can be generated on a HD computer screen. This has increased image quality and shortened the time required to take the x-rays which are often done under general anesthetic. Shortening the anesthetic time means your pet is awake faster and ready to go home sooner. Speed of producing X-ray images also helps in an emergency situation.
A digital system also means we can email the images when necessary to specialist radiology centers for further comment or advice on rare or unusual cases.
