Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital is equipped with digital radiology, or “digital x-ray.” Digital x-ray is an sophisticated imaging tool that provides digital images of your pet’s body, allowing us to visualize your dog or cat’s internal organs and internal systems such as muscular-skeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. The image quality of a digital x-ray is much higher than a film x-ray and can be visualized by us within a few seconds following exposure. Because we are able to view the x-ray almost immediately we can diagnose and treat your pet rapidly. Digital radiology is environmentally friendly because there are no chemicals to contaminate water systems. Radiation exposure to your pet is minimized; we use far less radiation for digital radiography.
Our dental suite is equipped with digital dental radiography. This latest technology allows us to visualize the internal anatomy of your pet's teeth along with the roots and surrounding bone, allowing us to diagnose bone loss or hidden disease that may be present in the tooth roots and jawbone areas that may need advanced treatment. Digital dental x-ray is environmentally friendly and radiation exposure to your pet minimized.
