Our hospitals are equipped with highly sophisticated digital radiography DR technology (direct digital radiography).
The X rays produced at a high frequency combined with an extremely short exposition time, a 1/360 of a second, creat highly detailed and very clear radiographic images which is a great advantage in veterinary medicine since our patients cannot be told to hold their breaths or be completely immobile while we take the X ray. Consequently, the quality of the pictures is highly superior to the one obtained with conventional radiography.
Furthermore, our electronic servers, which meet DICOM requirements, allow us to correct, if needed, the images seen on our high definition screens. Because of this, the exposition factors used never create images that are too pale or too dark. This advantage prevents us from having to reposition the animals and reexpose them, as well as the medical personnel around, again to X rays.
On top of that, we can increase, on the monitor, the images obtained so that specific areas can be examined more closely.
No more problems associated with development of radiographic films! Not only are they always at risk of being exposed prematurely to ambiant light but their development requires the use of chemical products that are harmful to health.
And what about the rapidity with which the results are obtained with digital radiology. Thanks to this technology, only a few seconds are needed to get the images compared to at least a few minutes required with conventional radiography.
Finally, with the use of telemedicine, we can transmit radiographs by internet to collegues and specialists located at a distance. The results are often obtained in less than 24 hours contrary to conventional radiography which necessitates at least a few days.
