Sometimes we are unable to determine from a physical examination what may be troubling your pet. This can be frustrating to you and uncomfortable for your pet. When this happens, we use state-of-the-art noninvasive radiology to help diagnose many pet illnesses and injuries. The specialists we work with, called radiologists, correlate medical image findings with other examinations and tests to help in the diagnosis of many disease conditions. We are committed to providing optimal care to our patients using state of the art veterinary diagnostic imaging. We also provide outpatient imaging services for veterinarians.

The radiologists at our hospital have completed a residency program and are board certified, just like our other specialists. A board-certified radiologist reads all radiographs taken at no extra charge to you.

CT scans allow visualizations of internal organs and soft tissues that are often not detectable with routine X-rays. X-ray computed tomography (CT) is a medical imaging method employing tomography created by computer processing. Digital geometry processing is used to generate a three-dimensional image of the inside of your pet’s body from a large series of two-dimensional X-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation. CT gives tremendous insight and accuracy into the diagnosis of nasal and pulmonary disease, as well as helping us to plan surgery.X-rays and CT scans help our veterinarians evaluate:

  • Musculo-skeletal system for bone and muscle disorders
  • Tooth, jaw, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems
  • Cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary disorders
  • Gastrointestinal and digestive system problems
  • Reproductive organs
  • Urinary elimination systems

Diagnostic Imaging

VCA ASEC has two full time, on site board-certified Veterinary Radiologists, Dr. Jean Reichle and Dr. David Szabo. The two specialists provide interpretation of radiographs (x-rays) from your referring veterinarian as well as those taken at VCA ASEC. We also perform ultrasound examinations of the abdomen, thorax, joints and muscles. Our 16 slice digital helical CT scanner provides 3-dimensional analysis of various body parts including the head, chest, abdomen, and spine, for diagnostic purposes or pre-surgical planning. All of our imaging modalities are digital and linked to an archive for easy access in-hospital or remotely. Radiographs, ultrasound, and CT exams may be scheduled on an outpatient basis as well.
