The capacity of a veterinarian’s ability to take quality radiographs (X-rays) has improved dramatically over the last several years. The greatest advancement in this field has been the digital x-ray, which produces a clearer image than the older film version and can be seen in seconds by a veterinarian. Insuring our hospital has the most advanced equipment and techniques has always been a priority to Dr. Sandifar, and the quality and precision of our x-ray capabilities is another example.

X-rays are an extremely important diagnostic tool for veterinarians, aiding in locating internal injuries including fractures and foreign bodies, as well as tumor identification, uncovering upper respiratory infections and determining organ size in the event of disease. The digital x-ray unit at Gulf Coast produces much clearer images that can be manipulated, meaning fewer retakes. The radiograph images can also be emailed to a specialist if needed, saving valuable time. Finally, the images are ready for Dr. Sandifar in seconds, meaning she can begin immediate treatment if necessary.

The Gulf Coast team is committed to the most advanced technologies available for the best possible outcome for our furry family members. If your pet has an issue that call for an x-ray, you can rest easy knowing that Dr. Sandifar is using only the best at Gulf Coast Veterinary Hospital.
