Digital Radiography

We are one of the few Veterinary practices in the UK offering the DR digital radiography system. This comprises a fixed plate X-ray detector.

This is different to the digital CR system which requires the detector plate to be physically moved to a reader, rather like the old chemical film system.

This is genuine state of the art technology and exceeds the standards in a large number of human hospitals.

The system offers image quality of outstanding quality and picture acquisition only 3 seconds after exposure.

This is of obvious benefit when taking any series of films, but allows almost real time results when undertaking procedures such as myelography.
