When we need to know what’s wrong with your pet, we routinely use Diagnostic Imaging to help identify diseases, injuries or problems, rule out causes, or provide a list of possible conditions.
Diagnostic Imaging is the process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention, as well as visual representation of the function of some organs or tissues. Diagnostic Imaging seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. Diagnostic imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it possible to identify abnormalities. Diagnostic Imaging used in our hospital includes digital x-rays and ultrasound.
Digital Imaging provides valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genito-urinary system (bladder, prostate). We use Diagnostic Imaging alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools.
We are proud to offer digital radiology (x-rays that are captured digitally rather than on film) and ultrasound. These state-of-the-art technologies use lower levels of radiation and allow us to provide a quicker diagnosis for your pet.
To avoid a blurry image, pets need to remain completely still while an x-ray is taken. In some cases, we may need to sedate your pet or use short-acting general anesthesia.
