Radiography is a very useful tool to assess skeletal structure, but it is also helpful in assessing the internal organs. Digital radiography is superior to conventional film in several ways. Most importantly it provides a better image, but it is also faster, and allows for image adjustments without the need for repeated exposures. Digital x-rays are also more easily (electronically) shared with specialists and referral hospitals.

Ultrasonography is a very effective non-invasive diagnostic tool used for the detection of abnormalities in the internal organs.
