X-Ray HD

High quality radiographs by proper positioning of the dog.


Each image must be labeled that uniquely identifies it.

Every picture, like HD, ED, OC(D) must be made completely forgery proof.



X-Ray ED

X-Ray positioning


1. lateral view (latero-lateral)
Limbs angulation 45 degrees.
The joint must be pointed in x-ray machine's central ray.

2. X-Ray picture cranio-caudale (The dog is lying on the chest).
Ideal would be if the outer lateral edge of the olecranon fit's the outer lateral upper arm rim (Humerusrand).       
The joint should be lay down reasonably in the middle of the x-ray cassettes (x-ray machine's central ray). X-Ray without screen, that means the cassette will lay down on the table.       
It is recommended that the cassette size is 13 x 18 cm.



ED-cranio-caudal optimal


ED-latero-lateral optimal

Every picture, like HD, ED, OC(D) must be made completely forgery proof.



X-Ray OC(D)

X-Ray positioning


a lateral view

Every picture, like HD, ED, OC(D) must be made completely forgery proof.


The joint schould be here also in the x-ray machine's central ray.

The x-raying leg is laying on the table and will be pulled in the front (kranial) and the upper leg will be pulled down (caudal). The head and the neck will be bent in the direction dorsal of the back.

The joint space should be completely visible (the caudale proportion of the head of the humerus must be visible).
X-Ray with screen, that means the cassette will be under the table. (The edge of the humerus must be clearly visible)

It is recommended that the cassette size is 18 x 24 cm. A correct exposure is necessary for all pictures .
