The Four types of Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging our veterinarians may utilize to assist in the diagnosis of your pet's condition are:

 

  • X-Rays
  • Ultrasounds
  • Endoscopy
  • CT Scans

 


 

Complete Digital Radiography 

 

X-rays are instrumental medical imaging tools for veterinarians. They can reveal a substantial amount of information about your pet’s health. The three most common x-rays for pet examinations include:

 

Abdominal

As the name suggests, abdominal x-rays allow the vet to assess the abdomen, stomach, and bladder stones.

The shapes of these organs help to indicate inconsistencies that may precede a specific condition or disease. They can also detect tumors, cancerous or otherwise, and they can diagnose pregnancies.

 

Chest

Chest X-rays are reliable for cancer detection.

They target the heart and lungs and are the preferential medical imaging tool for assessing trauma and fractures that have affected your pets.

 


 

Orthopedic

An Orthopedic x-ray is an examination of your pet’s bone configuration.

It can reveal fractures, bone deformations, and orthopedic disorders that are common to your pet’s species, age, or history. This may include elbow or hip dysplasia.

 


 

Ultrasound 

Ultrasound is quick. Scanning usually takes 30 to 60 minutes, and results may be seen immediately on a monitor and captured digitally for further evaluation by a radiologist.

Ultrasound can diagnose a wide range of medical conditions. Ultrasound is used to diagnose a wide range of benign and malignant diseases and medical conditions, including:

    • stones within the urinary bladder, kidneys, or gall bladder
    • abnormalities of the gall bladder, urinary bladder, prostate, or kidneys
    • enlarged lymph nodes
    • abnormal blood vessels
    • the fluid within the abdomen
    • a disease of the pancreas or liver
    • adrenal abnormalities
    • uterine infections
    • the diagnosis of pregnancy and fetal viability
    • diseases of the heart muscle (hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathy) and heart base tumors
    • fluid around the heart (pericardial effusion)

 


 

Colour Doppler Echocardiography Color

Doppler imaging (CDI) is a sophisticated form of ultrasound technology that overlays blood flow and velocity information onto a B-mode, two-dimensional, gray-scale image. This imaging technique, also called color Doppler echocardiography, color-coded Doppler, Doppler color-flow imaging, and color-flow imaging, is a pulsed-wave type Doppler echocardiography. Because the anatomical site of received Doppler-shift information can be readily determined, CDI is useful for documenting normal blood flow patterns and screening the heart and great vessels for abnormal flow areas.
