Radiography is the process of using light (x-rays) to create images on film to assess radio-opaque structures such as bones. Digital radiography is where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of chemicals and film. The advantage of digital radiography is that it saves time and renders a quicker diagnosis. It is most commonly used in the diagnosis of lameness and in pre-purchase exams to eliminate risk.
CAPE VET has their own portable, digital radiograph machine. It is easily transported and 100% mobile. This allows us to take radiographs in the comfort of your yard without having to truck your horse anywhere. The radiograph machine is available for radiographs from the head and cervical spine to the leg and hoof.
