Radiographs of the past were exposed silver emulsion on film. The film then had to be developed in a darkroom. This process was messy, costly and resulted in a film that was difficult to view or store. Today, with new digital technology, we at Safari can take a radiograph and have it appear on a screen within 30 seconds. This digital radiograph can now be magnified and digitally enhanced to show lesions that were never visible before. The radiograph can also now be stored on a hard disc and shared with other veterinarians and specialists over the Internet. Digital radiographs are the wave of the future and are already at Safari today.
