Tomorrow's Technology Today
The field of medical imaging has experienced
dramatic improvements recently, which has opened an exciting era
of diagnostic possibilities. Advanced technology is finally
accessible to veterinarians in general practice settings.
Stillwater Veterinary Clinic is committed to providing the best
care possible to your companions, and thus we are proud to
announce our transition to the world of digital imaging. We now
feature a digital x-ray unit, digital dental x-ray unit and a
sophisticated ultrasound system, all of which will allow for the
most advanced and up-to-date diagnostics for our patients.
Digital x-rays offer many benefits over
previous film radiographs. Within seconds after taking an image,
the results are displayed on a high-definition screen for
analysis. Features of the computer program allow clinicians to
manipulate the picture to create the most ideal image possible.
What this means for our patients are: better pictures, less time
undergoing imaging, and more accurate diagnosis.
Many of the same benefits apply to the
digital dental x-ray system. Instantaneous pictures of the oral
cavity will allow doctors to evaluate the crown and root of each
tooth thus providing more accurate evaluations of dental health.
Decisions regarding the best procedure for your animal can be
made immediately with the optimal treatments in mind.
The last component of our new imaging systems
is the state-of-the-art ultrasongraphy unit. With one of the
most advanced machines available to the veterinary market,
Stillwater Veterinary Clinic can conduct diagnostic ultrasounds
focusing on the abdominal organs and heart, as well as playing
an integral role in reproduction.
In the era of digital information, our ability to communicate
with other veterinarians, specialists and clients has greatly
increased with the ease of data transfer. Considering the
breadth of opportunities that these three advanced diagnostic
modalities offer to our clinic, we expect to undertake more
advanced cases while challenging our current practices. As we
hold to our commitment of providing the best possible care to
your animals, the staff at the Stillwater Veterinary Clinic is
excited about the future.
