PORTLAND, Ore., March 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Peninsula Dog and Cat Clinic, a Portland veterinary hospital, is now using the Sound DR Digital XRay System for diagnostic tests. The Sound DR system is a state-of-the-art diagnostic system that provides the highest image quality for enhanced diagnosis. Images appear sharp and crisp for both bone and sharp tissue detail, even within the same image. Consistently high quality images make it easier to diagnose health problems, according to the Portland veterinarians at Peninsula Dog and Cat Clinic. Additionally, since Smart DR utilizes digital X-rays, rather than traditional film X-rays, results are instantaneously available for evaluation and immediate care.
Portland veterinarian Dr. Kenneth DeRemer announced that Peninsula Dog and Cat Clinic uses the Sound DR Digital Xray System for diagnostic exams.
"The Sound DR Digital Xray System is truly state-of-the-art and the best technology currently on the market for veterinary diagnosis," said Dr. DeRemer. "At Peninsula Dog and Cat Clinic, we are committed to providing the best veterinary care possible, and this starts with the best diagnostic equipment for a prompt and accurate diagnosis."
The Sound DR Digital Xray System produces higher quality images and a faster turnaround from radiologists who are evaluating these images. This improves the speed of diagnostics and enhances the quality of veterinary medicine the clinic can offer, says veterinarian Dr. DeRemer.
"When a pet is sick or in distress, our goal is to quickly identify the source of the pain or health problem," said Dr. DeRemer. "The Sound DR Digital Xray System makes it easier to accurately conduct diagnostic tests and get the clean, crisp image we need the first time around for prompt diagnosis. There's no waiting to develop X-ray film only to discover we need to re-do the tests because the images are blurry. With Sound DR Digital Xray System, we get the accurate, precise results we need the first time."
Should a secondary opinion be required, the digital images are easy to share with emergency veterinarians and specialists for prompt review and diagnosis. Since the images are fully digital, they can quickly be emailed and shared with specialists not only in Portland, but also across the country, as needed.
"The Sound DR Digital Xray System truly allows our veterinary care team to offer an elevated level of service to pet owners and their pets," said Dr. DeRemer. "We are proud to be at the forefront of advanced digital technology and one of the only veterinary hospitals in the greater Portland area that offers this valuable diagnostic service."
