Diagnostic Imaging

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, Loomis Basin Veterinary Clinic 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.

The radiologists who work with Loomis Basin have completed a residency program and are board certified, just like our other specialists. A board-certified radiologist reads all radiographs taken at Loomis Basin at no extra charge to you. We are pleased to be able to offer access to four dedicated radiology specialists at Loomis Basin. Drs. Abby Dimock, Steve Harnagel, Eric Herrgesell, and Craig Long are part of Veterinary Medical Imaging (VMI) and work in partnership with us at Loomis Basin.

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

Ultrasound is a noninvasive, advanced technology that uses sound waves to examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Ultrasound allows visualization of tendons, muscles, and joints, as well as internal organs. It is also a safe, nonpainful method of determining pregnancy and evaluating fetal health during pregnancy. Ultrasound can also be used to safely guide collection of cells or tissue samples for advanced diagnostics.
