The overall goal of radiography is for veterinarians is twofold:
Using imaging to make diagnoses
Tracking treatment for various issues
However, there are still some limitations for even the most advanced versions of these procedures, which is where offshoot procedures like veterinary fluoroscopy come into play. This isn’t designed to supplant other radiography, but complement it instead. With this in mind, here are some of the potential situations where this may serve as the ideal option.
As a start, as high-quality as the images we see today are; at the end of the day, they are still fixed images. There are a variety of issues where it can be difficult to effectively capture progression with a single fixed image, but fluoroscopy helps navigate this problem. For example, dynamic issues like urinary problems or a collapsed trachea are much easier to follow using this format.
In addition, minimally invasive procedures are becoming more and more desired by vets and pet owners alike. Real-time image capture through veterinary fluoroscopy makes it possible to perform procedures in a less invasive manner, lowering the chance of potential complications or other related problems. In addition, going this route also lowers the amount of time certain procedures take, which means further reduced risk, as well as faster recovery time.
Veterinary fluoroscopy has a variety of modern uses, but the best way to utilize these is have the technology to do the job. This used to be exclusive to the largest practices, but innovations like our DynaVue total imaging solution system are changing that. Now, you have a combined digital radiography and veterinary fluoroscopy solution. With a user-friendly design and top image quality, it’s also far easier to integrate this into your existing operations than many of the alternatives on the market.
