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.
