Until recently, x-ray technology had remained unchanged for almost a hundred years. New digital X-ray systems have vastly improved our diagnostic abilities by using computers to aid in the capture and manipulation of the image. The results are simply stunning! Now X-rays are safer, quicker, and much more useful. They can be stored in a digital format and sent over the web for consultation with a specialist if necessary. The Court Street Animal Hospital has invested in this revolutionary technology to better serve you and your four legged companions.
