Computed Radiography is one of several valuable diagnostic tools that allow an equine veterinarian to see inside your horse. Traditional radiography uses film that needs chemical processing. Computed radiography, in contrast, instantly converts x-ray images into digital signals. They can then be displayed on a computer screen. The digital process results in fewer retakes, meaning less radiation exposure to your horse and to veterinary personnel.
Computed radiography’s immediate results make for rapid interpretation and action. Your veterinarian can also quickly send the images to other veterinarians anywhere in the world for review via the Internet.
