We can evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body’s organs using radiographs. Some medical conditions, such as kidney, heart, or liver disease, can cause organ size changes, which radiographs can detect. Certain medical conditions, such as intestinal blockage or cancer, can also alter or distort the shape and position of organs. Radiographs are also used to detect tumors and diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and other conditions. Radiographs can also assist us in locating and identifying foreign bodies that an animal has ingested.
