Digital radiography is a technique where X-rays are digitally transmitted to a processor/computer. Instead of having to “develop” the film, the “captured image” can be viewed directly on the screen/processor.
Our Eklin Digital Radiography system enables us to obtain an image within seconds of taking a radiograph, with the capability to magnify, contrast, and enhance images for maximal information. Other advantages of the digital radiography system include increased detail of both bone and surrounding soft tissue structures, and consistent image quality. On request, we would be happy to provide clients with a copy of their horses’ radiographs (x-rays) on CD.
What is digital radiography used for?
Osteoarthritis/degenerative joint disease
Podiatry cases (assisting with trimming and/or shoeing your horse); we can work with farriers on these cases
