Introduction

Image quality and type of film

  • Radiography film commonly used in canine and feline veterinary radiography will not always provide the detail necessary in these small mammals. 
  • A high resolution film such as a mammography x-ray film is highly advantageous, however standard radiographs with the use of a screen will also produce films of an acceptable standard. 
  • A radiology exposure chart should be developed for its use with each radiograph unit to ensure consistent results.
