As a veterinary professional, you want to make sure that you have all the assets possible to provide a rounded set of care for your patients and their owners. One of the major elements of this is making sure that you have the top diagnostic techniques and equipment available, and fluoroscopy fits nicely into that mindset. Here’s how.
As a start, fluoroscopy became a more popular option in vet clinics across the country with the rise of interventional radiology in the veterinary world. While this was commonplace in human medicine for a while, professionals are just starting to learn the potential when it comes to helping provide care, diagnosis, and ongoing treatment to animals. However, in order to implement this, vets needed imaging that provided moving, rather than static images, of certain bodily systems. Fluoroscopy provides this support.
On top of providing a new tier of support to existing procedures, fluoroscopy also makes certain procedures possible in animals that weren’t possible before. An example of this is tracheal collapse. This is, unfortunately, common for some small breed dogs, but by using fluoroscopy to support a tracheal stenting, it’s possible to address the condition in a minimally invasive way.
When it comes to fluoroscopy, whether it’s a complement to other treatments or the main practice being used in a care regimen, it’s gone from a novel concept to a standard when it comes to diagnostics and care. It’s essential for veterinarians of all kinds to work with partners like JPI Healthcare Solutions to make sure they are providing the fluoroscopy and similar services that modern clientele demand. As an example, look at our DynaVue 2-in-1 Solution. This great piece of equipment allows for the dual benefits of digital radiography and fluoroscopy, all in an accessible way.
