Digital Radiology and Diagnostic Sonography
X-Ray imaging is crucial for a veterinarian to evaluate musculo-skeletal, cardiovascular/cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal, reproductive, and urinary systems. Digital radiographs are an up-graded version of the old standard imaging processes used in the past. The digital films are better quality and easier for our veterinarians to read and make a correct diagnosis. Digital capabilities allow us to e-mail any image in a matter of seconds to a board-certified veterinary radiologist for his/her review. Of course a fee is charged by the vet-radiologist for his service, but the fee is very fair, and we can get a second opinion on “hard to diagnose cases.” We know that our level of care is elevated by offering these types of additional services that go beyond what most veterinary clinics can offer.
Sonograms are an ultrasound-based diagnostic imaging technique. Visualization of soft tissue structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, vessels, and internal organs are enhanced by sonography versus using radiographs alone. In addition We perform obstetric sonograms for pregnancy diagnosis in small animals.
