RADIOLOGY AND ULTRASOUNDS
Radiographs (X-rays) are used to evaluate and diagnose problems within your pet’s organ system, including the heart, lungs, and in the abdomen, as well as orthopedic problems with the bones and spine. These problems can diagnose many conditions, such as fractured bones, cancerous tumors, enlarged heart, stones within the urinary tract, arthritis, pneumonia, and more.
Ultrasound is an advanced, non-invasive diagnostic imaging technique that is painless. A computer image is displayed using sound waves that help us evaluate the liver, spleen, kidneys, adrenal glands, lymph nodes, gall bladder, and urinary bladder. Ultrasound can be used to avoid unnecessary surgery as it allows us to detect the spread of cancer.
