Digital radiology allows us to rapidly obtain high-definition x-rays that can be an important diagnostic tool for a variety of patient conditions,including lameness, heart disease, foreign body ingestion, constipation and many other disorders that require more than a physical examination and blood tests to achieve a diagnosis.
