At Washington Veterinary Clinic, we are proud to be on the cutting edge of medical technology. Radiology is a technique and diagnostic tool that we use to look inside the body in an entirely non-invasive way. X-rays allow us to create images of all the body’s organs. In much the same way as humans, we capture and study radiographic pictures of bones, organs, and blood vessels, which can reveal fractures or a host of other illnesses such as arthritis, osteoporosis, pancreatitis, diabetes, and cancer in animals.
In other words, the use of radiology gives us a view of the internal organs in your pets’ body that we otherwise could not see. It is a valuable diagnostic tool that helps veterinarians detect and prevent illness.
The use of radiology is safe, and our entire staff is highly trained. We also have a close working relationship with several referral animal health facilities should you pet need advanced medical care. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of medical care possible, and this is just one of the many ways we achieve that.
