Digital Radiology

Radiology – Telemedicine Consultations 24/7 by Diplomates American College Veterinary Radiology (DACVR)

West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center has teamed up with Idexx Laboratories, Inc. to offer consultations by board certified veterinary radiologists 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This allows us to obtain consultations on diagnostic imaging at the click of a button within hours, any time of the day or night, further enhancing the care provided for your pet. Idexx employs over 35 board-certified veterinary radiologists (DACVR). Board Certification requires three years of a residency program after completion of veterinary school.

Digital radiology, or digital x-ray, is a common imaging tool we use to examine your dog or cat’s organs along with their cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. There are a number of benefits to digital radiology compared to traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays have a higher image quality than film x-rays, making it much easier to view and interpret. These images are instantly available to our veterinarians, which means less time away from your pet and a faster, more accurate diagnosis.

At West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center, we use digital radiology to find foreign objects and materials within the body that may have been ingested; diagnose fractures, bone and joint abnormalities, and other injuries; screen for abnormalities in the heart, lungs, urinary, and digestive organs; and screen for certain forms of cancer.
