radiography at McMaster and HeapDigital Radiography

Radiography is performed by all our vets and is a vital diagnostic tool for assessing the heart and lungs, all the abdominal organs and bones. Xrays can be performed on an awake animal and is a safe, painless, quick procedure.

With our New Digital Radiography machine, there is no more time spent developing radiographs as with digital xrays your picture appears instantly on a computer screen. You can magnify the area you are interested in, measure organ sizes, change the contrast depending on whether you are looking at bone or soft tissue and you have the freedom of taking as many shots are you need. Each xray taken can be stored under the patients chart and easily viewed by the owner.
