Advances in the field of medical imaging are not just restricted to humans. Massive strides have been made for our animal friends in radiology, including canine, feline, equine, and avian species. They, too, can reap the benefits of emerging technologies.

There are currently 5,927 urgent care centers in the United States, an increase of 7.9% from last year. It is a business sector that is rapidly expanding, and thus, the need for x-ray equipment follows suit.
X-rays are a natural form of radiation used to capture an image of structures in the body.
Gonadal shielding protects a patient's reproductive organs - the testes, ovaries, or uterus - from radiation exposure during imaging. Typically, this is done by placing a 0.5mm lead-lined vest or cover over the area. How does it work? Radiation waves retract off these lead-lined areas, unable to reach vulnerable body regions.
