Radiography is a technique where xrays are used to form images in 2D. The contrast on the image depends on the thickness of the structures the xrays are having to travel through. The thicker (ie. more dense) a structure, the whiter it will appear on the image.
In veterinary medicine radiography is used for the diagnosis of a number of problems.
With the arrival of digital imaging the images have simply become a digital file which is easier to work with as it can be altered (contrast, zoom, comparative studies, etc.) and can be sent as a digital file for assessment by other vets.
