Our Advanced Equipment & When We Use It

Our veterinary radiologist reviews images from our hospital’s advanced imaging equipment and works with other specialists in accurately diagnosing our patients’ conditions. Our advanced equipment includes:

16-Slice CT Scanner

Our 16-slice CT scanner takes incredibly detailed images in less time than lower-powered scanners. Our specialists use our CT scanner to help diagnose a range of conditions, including:

  • Orthopedic disease including joint disease and bone fractures
  • Tumors
  • Nasal and sinus disease
  • Blood clots
  • Infections
  • Lung disease
  • Vascular (blood vessel) disease

High-field 1.5T MRI

Our MRI allows us to view clean, detailed scans of your pet’s moving anatomy such as organs and the abdominal cavity. We use it to diagnose conditions such as:

  • Meningitis
  • Encephalitis
  • Identifying the cause of seizures
  • Muscle tears and strains
  • Vascular disease
  • Diseases of the nervous system

Digital X-Ray

Our digital X-ray machine is a fast tool we can use to get a detailed image of your pet’s internal structures. We’ll use our X-ray machine as a predecessor to a CT scan or MRI if the X-ray comes back as inconclusive. Digital X-ray is useful if we suspect:

  • Fractures
  • Lung disease
  • Bladder and kidney stones
  • Foreign body ingestion
  • Joint conditions
  • Gastric dilation-volvulus

Ultrasound

Our veterinary radiologist is trained to perform ultrasounds of organs and organ systems, as well as ultrasound-guided aspirates and biopsies. We’ll use ultrasound to evaluate:

  • Gastrointestinal tract
  • Pancreas
  • Urogenital tract
  • Liver and gall bladder system
  • Tumors
  • Adrenal, thyroid and parathyroid glands
  • Musculoskeletal
