Digital radiography is an advanced form of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-rays instead of photographic film. This leading diagnostic tool is especially useful in emergencies, allowing doctors to review results within seconds and make a quick diagnosis. Images can also be enhanced or enlarged to provide more detailed information than traditional X-rays.
Bronchoscopy is an endoscopic technique used to view the inside of a patient’s airways typically for diagnostic purposes. This modality is also commonly used in interventional stenting procedures to keep airways open in patients experiencing breathing impairment or to take samples for laboratory tests.
Computed tomography is an advanced imaging technique used to produce detailed information of anatomy. CT scans are quick, painless, and noninvasive. In emergency situations, this modality can reveal internal injuries quickly enough to help save pets’ lives.
Endoscopy is a noninvasive, nonsurgical procedure that uses a thin, flexible, fiber-optic tube that can be inserted into different cavities of the body to examine the patient for abnormalities not detectable by a radiograph or ultrasound. Endoscopes are also commonly used to remove foreign bodies from the esophagus, stomach, and upper airways to help avoid surgery whenever possible. If the foreign body cannot be removed using this noninvasive technique, endoscopy can be used to provide the surgeon with additional information.
