When is digital radiology necessary?


If your veterinarian needs to collect more information beyond their physical exam, x-rays are typically the first line of diagnostic imaging. X-rays may lead to a diagnosis which allows your veterinarian to create a plan for treatment. In some cases further diagnostics are necessary but x-rays are an excellent starting point.


What do x-rays accurately diagnose?


  • State of skeletal structure and composition

When are ultrasounds most useful?


Ultrasounds are a non-invasive way to evaluate internal organs. Ultrasound images provide a three-dimensional view of the liver, kidneys, spleen, bladder and intestines. Echocardiograms are ultrasounds of the heart which are vital in the definitive diagnosis of various types of heart disease that dogs and cats can develop.
