Advanced Diagnostic Imaging
Since our pets cannot talk to us and verbally tell us what is wrong, we need to use all of our senses in order to figure out what is wrong with them when they are sick. Part of the tools every vet should have on hand include advanced imaging modalities like Ultrasound and DR Radiography. When it comes to diagnostic imaging, technology counts - you can only diagnose what your machine is able to actually see. We have maintained a state-of-the-art set of diagnostic imaging machines to use with your furry family members.
"If you can't see the forest for the trees, imagine what you are missing."
Our Acclarix AX-8 Ultrasound will provide us images of your pet using high-definition, multiple frequencies and Color Doppler with sound in order to get the most information possible. We are able to transfer those images within just a few minutes for you to see on any internet-connected device, and if required, we can forward them to any desired Radiologists and Specialists that may need to review them.
The RadMedix Acuity 17x17 is cutting edge human x-ray technology adapted to the veterinary world. The advanced x-ray plate utilizes directly deposited cesium iodide (Csi) for enhanced image contrast and sharpness with quick digital image acquisition in just a few seconds. In plain English, this allows us to take fewer shots in order to get our desired image, so your pet will get finished and back to your side with less stress and less exposure. We will be able to show you their x-rays on any internet connected device within just a few minutes of taking them.
Imaging can be done without sedation in the vast majority of cases, and can be used to assist with:
- Pre-operative health screenings for hidden disease
- General organ system evaluation (Liver, Stomach, Intestines, etc)
- Bladder and Kidney evaluation
- Sterile urine collection
- Pregnancy confirmation and aging
- Cancer diagnosis, biopsy, and monitoring in both the chest and abdomen
- Screening for thyroid and adrenal gland disease
- Evaluation of heart function
If ultrasound or x-ray imaging will be able to provide us more information to help your pet, we can use these tools the same day you are in to see us. If you have questions, or if your pet has any imaging needs, please give us a call!
