Radiology

14420_Addison_Grier_10-04-2016 16_01_09_1-1Radiographs, also commonly referred to as X-rays, are a valuable diagnostic tool for a variety of conditions. It is a non-invasive method to help visualize internal structures. Bones may be evaluated for fractures, arthritis, and tumors. If your pet is breathing abnormal or coughing, they help us evaluate the lungs and heart. Radiographs of the abdomen help to detect bladder and kidney stones, certain foreign bodies, masses, and the size of the liver, spleen, or other organs.

Jaffrey-Rindge Veterinary Hospital upgraded to a state-of-the-art digital system with a Gadox detection plate. This allows for more efficient radiographs. We also have the ability to share the information with specialists by C/D or e-mail.

The hospital also has digital dental radiology. Dental radiographs are excellent for evaluating the roots of the teeth and the surrounding bone. It may also be used for the nose of smaller patients and even feet and legs of pediatrics, ferrets, rats, and other small pets.
