Radiology is a medical specialty that focuses on using advanced imaging technologies, such as X-rays and ultrasound, for the diagnosis and management of complex cases.
Our veterinary radiologists’ advanced level of expertise allows them to see abnormalities and clarify findings from diagnostic imaging procedures. This is key to providing the best possible care for your pet.
Radiography is the most common diagnostic imaging tool and is the first step in obtaining a diagnosis for pets. We offer state-of-the-art digital radiography, which provides a rapid acquisition of digital images that are clearer than conventional than film radiographs, and can also be manipulated on a computer, allowing our doctors to view them in ways not possible with films. All digital images are stored electronically, allowing for easy retrieval of patient images on computers throughout the hospital, as well as easily transferred to primary care veterinarians for review.
Ultrasonography provides a painless and non-invasive method of evaluating the internal structures of the body and providing a view of abnormalities that cannot otherwise be seen with other diagnostic methods. Ultrasounds allow for evaluation of internal organs, musculoskeletal injuries, abnormalities within the gastrointestinal system, as well as fluid or masses within the body. Together, with patient medical history, an ultrasound exam can often diagnose the source of pain or illness.
