Pet Diagnostics

Radiography: imaging option that allows for internal examination to diagnose fractures, foreign bodies, and other conditions.

CT Scan (computed tomography): test that produces multiple images of the inside of the body to view internal organs, soft tissues and blood vessels, and bones.

ECG (electrocardiography): tool that records the electrical and muscular activity of the heart. ECG can be used to check for heart arrhythmias and other abnormalities.

Ultrasound: imaging tool that uses ultrasonic sound waves and echoes to produce an image of a patient’s organs. We use ultrasound to evaluate soft tissues of the musculoskeletal system.

Fluoroscopy: imaging technique that uses radiography to obtain images in real-time of the internal structures of a patient, including the skeletal, digestive, and reproductive systems, with an instrument called a fluoroscope.
