Imaging Center

Our animal hospital is proud to offer a state-of-the-art imaging center to provide the highest level of diagnostic capabilities for our patients. Our imaging center utilizes advanced technology and equipment to provide accurate and detailed images of your pet’s internal organs and structures. Our diagnostic imaging services include digital radiography, ultrasound, MRI and CT scans. Our experienced veterinary radiologists and technicians work closely with our veterinary team to ensure that each image is properly analyzed and interpreted to provide an accurate diagnosis. With our advanced imaging capabilities, we can diagnose a wide range of conditions, including internal injuries, tumors, and orthopedic issues. Our commitment to investing in the latest imaging technology reflects our dedication to providing the best possible care for your beloved pet.

  • Digital radiography (X-rays): Digital radiography uses X-rays to create detailed images of your pet’s internal structures, including bones, joints, and organs. These images can help diagnose a variety of conditions, including fractures, arthritis, and tumors.
  • Ultrasound: Ultrasound uses sound waves to create images of your pet’s internal organs and structures. This non-invasive imaging technique can help diagnose conditions such as bladder stones, tumors, and heart disease.
  • Computed tomography (CT): CT scans use X-rays to create detailed, 3D images of your pet’s internal structures. This imaging technique is particularly useful for diagnosing orthopedic issues, tumors, and neurological conditions.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of your pet’s internal structures. This non-invasive imaging technique is particularly useful for diagnosing neurological conditions and soft tissue injuries.
  • Fluoroscopy: Fluoroscopy uses X-rays to create real-time, moving images of your pet’s internal structures. This imaging technique is particularly useful for diagnosing conditions that require a dynamic view, such as swallowing disorders.
  • Endoscopy: Endoscopy uses a tiny camera attached to a long, flexible tube to examine your pet’s internal structures. This imaging technique is particularly useful for diagnosing conditions in the digestive tract, respiratory system, and urinary tract.
  • Interventional radiology: Interventional radiology involves using imaging techniques to guide minimally invasive procedures, such as biopsies or drain placements.

Our imaging center assists us in performing specialty surgeries such as the following:

  • Oncologic surgery: This involves removing cancerous tumors from your pet’s body. The goal of oncologic surgery is to remove as much of the cancerous tissue as possible while preserving your pet’s quality of life.
  • Neurological surgery: This involves surgical procedures to diagnose and treat conditions affecting your pet’s brain and nervous system. Examples include brain tumors, spinal cord injuries, and herniated discs.
  • Orthopedic surgery: This involves surgical procedures to diagnose and treat conditions affecting your pet’s bones, joints, and muscles. Examples include fractures, ligament tears, and hip dysplasia.
  • Ophthalmic surgery: This involves surgical procedures to diagnose and treat conditions affecting your pet’s eyes. Examples include cataracts, glaucoma, and corneal ulcers.
  • Cardiothoracic surgery: This involves surgical procedures to diagnose and treat conditions affecting your pet’s heart and lungs. Examples include heart valve disease, congenital heart defects, and lung cancer.
  • Soft tissue surgery: This involves surgical procedures to diagnose and treat conditions affecting your pet’s internal organs and soft tissues. Examples include bladder stone removal, foreign body removal, and gastrointestinal surgery.
  • Minimally invasive surgery: This involves surgical procedures that use small incisions and specialized equipment to diagnose and treat conditions. Examples include laparoscopic surgery, arthroscopy, and thoracoscopy.
