Our on-site, state of the art radiology equipment produces high quality images to aid in quick diagnosis of many disorders. Radiology helps our veterinarians evaluate musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems.
Digital radiographs allow greater sensitivity for viewing all body parts. We are able to diagnose foreign bodies that would not be visible on film x-ray. They can be used alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools to provide a list of possible causes for a pet’s condition or to rule out other diseases. Images created in a digital format also make it much easier to make copies of your pet’s radiographs for referral or travel if needed.
While digital radiology has made diagnostics easier, there are still some soft tissue structures that will not be seen otherwise. This is where ultrasound comes in. Ultrasound allows us to see those structures. Additionally, where radiographs show us a still picture, ultrasound allows us to capture movement, often catching things not visible on radiographic images.
