Falmouth Animal Hospital is pleased to offer state-of-the-art digital x-ray processing for both dental and full body x-rays for pets. We are very excited for this new addition.
Digital x-ray provides a number of benefits over the traditional film x-rays, both for the patient as well as the veterinary team. Images are obtained much more quickly and with greater accuracy. Fewer retakes are required, resulting in less radiation exposure both for the patient as well as the staff.
In addition, digital images can be quickly sent to other veterinarians, including veterinary radiologists, allowing us to get results in a matter of hours rather than days. Records can be stored electronically and are protected from damage or loss.
Furthermore, the chemical processing step required to develop traditional film x-rays is eliminated, creating a huge reduction in chemical usage and hazardous waste. Digital x-ray allows us to provide superior care to our patients and supports our goal of progressive, high-quality medicine.
