Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your pet's body. The images can provide valuable information for diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions.
Fluoroscopy is a non-invasive imaging modality that uses x-rays to produce a real time moving image. Fluoroscopy allows our specialists to capture, monitor, replay, and manipulate video of a specific part of the body while it is in motion. Traditionally more invasive surgical options may have been required without the assistance of fluoroscopy. This technology gives Animal Emergency Medical Center the capability to provide your pet with the most current advancements in veterinary medicine in addition to the development of new and less invasive treatments for current diseases processes.
Fluoroscopy is used to diagnose problems such as:
Computed tomography, more commonly known as a CT or CAT scan, is a diagnostic medical test that, like traditional x-rays, produces multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body.
The cross-sectional images generated during a CT scan can be reformatted in multiple planes, and can even generate three-dimensional images. These images can be viewed on a computer monitor, printed on film or transferred to a CD or DVD.
CT images of internal organs, bones, soft tissue and blood vessels typically provide greater detail than traditional x-rays, particularly of soft tissues and blood vessels.
Using specialized equipment and expertise to create and interpret CT scans of the body, radiologists can more easily diagnose problems such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious disease, appendicitis, trauma and musculoskeletal disorders.
Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a patient's digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your veterinarian can view pictures of the digestive tract on a color TV monitor.
