Diagnostic Imaging

Sometimes we are unable to determine what is troubling your pet from a standard physical examination. We understand that this can be both frustrating to you and uncomfortable for your pet. When this happens, our hospital will use state-of-the-art noninvasive radiology to help diagnose many pet illnesses and injuries. The specialists we work with, called radiologists, combine medical image findings with the results of other examinations and tests to help in the diagnosis of many disease conditions.

Our hospital’s radiologists have all completed a residency program and are board certified, just like our other specialists. In addition, a board-certified member of our Veterinary Medical Imaging (VMI) team will read all radiographs to you at no extra charge.

X-ray Computed Tomography, or CT scans, is a medical imaging method employing tomography, or imaging by sections. CT scans capture images of internal organs and soft tissues that are often not detectable on routine X-rays. Digital geometry processing is then used to generate a three-dimensional image of the inside of your pet’s body from a series of these two-dimensional X-ray images taken as the x-ray generator moves around your anaesthetized pet. CT imaging gives our doctors tremendous insight and accuracy into the diagnosis of nasal and pulmonary disease, as well as helps us to plan surgery.

X-rays and CT scans help our veterinarians evaluate:

  • Bone and muscle disorders in the musculo-skeletal system
  • Tooth, jaw, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems
  • Cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary disorders
  • Gastrointestinal and digestive system problems
  • Reproductive organs
  • Urinary elimination systems

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