Episode 11: X-rays

X-rays are an amazing, non-invasive diagnostic procedure that literally allows us to see inside a body. However, they still require a lot of expertise to perform and interpret, and there are limitations that affect their use in pets.

Nicole and Jez discuss how x-rays work, and why we take the precautions that we do when taking x-rays in animals.
