CAH has a dedicated room for x-ray services. X-rays, properly called radiographs, are still images of various body parts. They are used to help diagnose problems of soft-tissues, i.e. stomach, intestines, liver, kidneys, bladder, heart and lungs. They are also used to examine bones for fractures, arthritis and other diseases. Sometimes, special dyes and contrast agents are used for further diagnostics. Most animals receive sedation to allow accurate x-rays to be taken. Our radiographic system is digital. The images are captured instantaneously on a computer. This lessens the time it takes to perform studies and minimizes stress and sedation time for your pets. Digital images can be instantly sent to specialists or copied onto CD's or flash drives so owners can easily be given copies when needed for specialist referrals.
