This zoo recently released the routine health exams of its animals, with the X-rays providing some spooky results just in time for Halloween. Included in the scans released by the Oregon Zoo in Portland were the skeletons of bear paws, eagle claws, toucan heads and entire lizards.

Every animal at the zoo undergoes such routine exams, and digital radiology is a useful diagnostic tool that helps experts provide health care.

In a statement, the zoo said: “Digital radiology allows us to get X-ray results faster and fine-tune the images after taking them, so we’re able to minimize anesthesia and examination time for animals. … This decreased anesthesia time means lower risk and improved safety for our patients.

“Plus we can digitally archive images for later comparison and share X-rays with consultants and veterinary staff at other zoos.” (Caters News)
