Our clinic is equipped with a Canon Digital X-ray System. Digital x-rays are superior to conventional systems for many reasons. Besides being quicker and in some cases allowing lower exposure times, they produce quality radiographs, which can be post-processed to give very sharp images. This also allows manipulation of the image to; enlarge or zoom in on a particular area, reverse or flip images, or enlarge the entire picture.
All this allows better scrutiny of the shot while decreasing the number of x-rays taken. Since many of our patients aren’t accommodating when it comes to sitting perfectly still, the above features cut down on the number of retakes.
Besides all these attributes, digital radiography does not use chemicals in its processing, thus reducing the effect on our environment and allowing the Bradford Animal Clinic to reduce its carbon footprint.
