Radiography is an important part of diagnostic imaging in veterinary medicine. X-ray images (radiographs) allow radiologists and other specialists to examine the body for injury or disease.   They are not only used for bones, but radiographs also provide examination of the heart, lungs, and abdominal organs. Imaging provides a large amount of information by non-invasive means. It does not alter the disease process or cause unacceptable discomfort to the animal. Although radiography itself is painless, sedation is often desirable to reduce anxiety and stress associated with the procedure, to promote acquisition of good diagnostic studies with minimal repeats, and to control pain associated with manipulation in animals with painful disorders such as fractures and arthritis.
