Radiology & Ultrasound
With a digital x-ray and ultrasound onsite, we can diagnose your pet’s conditions and share results with specialist providers when necessary.
Radiology is the medical discipline that uses diagnostic imaging (radiography, ultrasound, computerized tomography, nuclear medicine, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose and treat diseases within the bodies of animals.
Radiography is the most common imaging procedure used in veterinary practices. The x-ray images (radiographs) produced from this modality are identical to those produced in human hospitals, but are specialized for dogs, cats, and other animals. X-rays work well for imaging bone, foreign objects, and abnormalities of the abdomen and thorax.
Ultrasonography is the second most common imaging modality in veterinary medicine. Ultrasound is much better at imaging the soft tissues within the body compared to x-rays. Ultrasounds are commonly used to visualize the abdominal organs and heart in small animal veterinary practice.
