Our Carestream CR [computised radiography] machine has improved the way we undertake radiography and radiology in this practice. It's pretty much a giant digital camera with the images produced on our largest plate of 35cm x 43 cm. This image is saved to a computer and can be enhanced for better image quality. The image can then be transmitted electronically. The Carestream Vita LE CR system can process 32 plates per hour, is compact, robust and capable of producing very high quality radiographs. Around 15,000 of these units have been sold around the world for both human and veterinary uses. It is also used in a military setting on the battlefield for electronic transmission of x-ray images back to base. There is the capacity for image review and manipulation therefore reducing the number of re-takes. We can also email images to specialist veterinary surgeons for an immediate opinion. Overall the quality and efficiency of radiography has now improved at the Grange Veterinary Surgery leading to better patient outcomes.
Our dedicated staff are committed to providing the best medical and surgical treatments as well as providing the latest information when it comes to the needs and care of your pets.
