VCA Central Kitsap Animal Hospital is proud to offer state-of-the-art Digital Radiology Services. Digital radiographs ("x-rays") are essentially film-less radiographs. Traditional radiographs use photographic film to capture images whereas digital radiographs use a digital image capture device (computer) to record the x-ray image. There are many advantages to digital radiographs including a shorter time to take the image, lack of chemicals needed to process the images, and less radiation exposure to your pet and veterinarian. These images can also be digitally enhanced for best visualization of a problem. Digital radiographs can easily be copied to disk, magnified or sent to a specialist for evaluation at the press of a button. Ask our staff or veterinarians if you have questions about digital radiographs.
All radiographs taken at VCA Central Kitsap Animal Hospital are interpreted by a board certified veterinary radiologist. Digital technology allows us to obtain this service in a very short period of time, 24 hours a day, to provide the best medical care possible for your pet.
