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, Animal Referral Arizona uses 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

Our hospital has state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging equipment to give our team the tools needed to discover the source of your pet's illness as quickly and effectively as possible.

We have on-site digital x-ray (pictured) which allows us to take images that our doctor on shift can review immediately, and even submit for interpretation by a board-certified radiologist if something suspicious is noted.

Our facility is also equipped with an ultrasound unit that enables our team to image your pet's internal organs in great detail, giving us the ability to make well-informed decisions about how to treat as well as allowing us to give our clients the clearest possible idea of what may be going on with their pet.
