What’s Shaping the World of Veterinary Medical Imaging
What's Shaping the World of Veterinary Medical Imaging
Veterinary medical imaging has its own unique challenges compared to the same practices for human patients. Not only are you working with patients that can’t communicate the nature of their issues with you, but different animals and even different breeds of the same animal may require very different approaches to the same practices. With this in mind, there’s a lot of technology out there that you can use to support your practice. We’re going to focus on three of the options that we offer here at JPI Healthcare Solutions.
Digital Radiography: A lot of the same benefits of digital radiography for humans apply to animals as well. Better quality images and the capacity to manipulate images make it easier to detect certain problems. Quicker processing times allow you to serve more patients.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound for veterinary isn’t just for tracking pregnancies. There are a variety of other practices where it can be useful.
Fluoroscopy for veterinary: In some cases, it’s necessary to see how the body is impacted in motion versus looking at static images. This is a key reason for the advent of fluoroscopy in the veterinary world. This is the only method available to get an accurate diagnosis of certain medical problems like breathing issues in dogs.
When it comes to veterinary medical imaging, whether we are discussing ultrasound, fluoroscopy, or digital radiography, there are a lot of different trends and innovations driving change in the future. The good news is that this makes it possible for practices to better serve their patients. The drawback is that in order to do so, you need to have an industry partner that can guide you to the right equipment for each situation.
