Diagnostic Imaging

CT (Cat Scan)

Ultrasound is another imaging modality that  helps to better evaluate the internal organs. This is like a sonogram for a baby. It can be used to perform ultrasound guided cystocenteses (urine collection), fine needle aspirates of internal organs, and checking for free fluid. Ultrasound helps us evaluate the size, shape, texture, architecture and function of the internal organs. We have consulting agreements with a board certified cardiologist (heart doctor) and radiologists.

X-rays help us evaluate what your pet's skeleton and internal organs look like. We can determine if there are foreign bodies, bladder or kidney stones, free fluid, free air or masses that require surgery. We evaluate if there is arthritis, fractures or dislocation of joints. We also evaluate if there is an enlarged heart, heart failure, pneumonia, or orthopedic disease. We have digital x-rays which provide instant images and the ability to consult with a board certified radiologist. 

CT (Cat Scan) provides 3-D x-ray imaging for higher level of detail than traditional X-rays. CT scans are used in cancer screening, paralysis cases, seizures, chronic nasal issues, difficult to pinpoint orthopedic issues and more. Small animals up to X-large dogs (Great Danes) can be imaged with our machine.
