Diagnostic imaging refers to the techniques and processes used to create images of your pet's body or body parts for medical purposes. These images allow your veterinarian to diagnose or re-examine a disease condition or determine if your pet's systems are normal.
There are many forms of diagnostic imaging, including radiographs (x-rays), ultrasound, which we offer at our hospital. CT scans and MRI can be taken at a referral hospital. Some form of diagnostic imaging is usually required in a medical work-up or as part of a general wellness examination.
