Chennai: The veterinary hospital at Arignar Anna Zoological Park, Vandalur, has now been equipped with a high-end, totally mobile and portable digital radiography unit, which is said to be the first of its kind in any zoo in India.

A press release said, “The entire unit can be operated with inbuilt battery back-up. It can be not only used in any animal enclosure but also in any field-level operations for rapid diagnosis of conditions that demand radiography.”

It further said the images can be obtained spontaneously without any manual or time-consuming process.

“This facility will be of high utility for the veterinarian to render immediate treatment to the animals on the spot,” the release added.
