We are very happy to report that Palmer Animal Hospital has upgraded to a Fuji digital X-ray system. Much like in photography, film is becoming obsolite in Radiography. Digital systems have many advantages over film. Digital images can be optimized by the computer so that there are very few retakes due to technique (only for positioning) thereby reducing exposure to X-rays for both patients and staff. Storage and filing are also much less of a problem as our Radiography computer can store nearly 100,000 images—more than we’ll ever take in our lifetime! Images can be transmitted electronically when needed for referrals, and can easily be copied onto CDs. Digital Radiography is also more environmentally friendly because there are no more developing chemicals and no concerns about the disposal of the old films which contain silver. We look forward to serving your pet better with our new Fuji system.
