A board-certified radiologist is someone who has undergone advanced training in all diagnostic imaging modalities.
A radiograph, or digital x-ray, is a type of photograph that can look inside the body and reveal information that may not be discernible from the outside.
Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography.
Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones and organs and diagnose conditions including bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, spinal cord diseases and some tumors.
