Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic Imaging

We provide a range of advanced diagnostic imaging services which provides us with images of internal structures such as muscles, tendons, bones, nerves and internal organs. The images then allow our teams to diagnose and develop treatment plans in patients across all disciplines at Vet Referrals, greatly contributing to a successful outcome for the patient.

With the use of Diagnostic Imaging, we are also able to perform minimally invasive procedures under imaging guidance, such as fine needle aspirations, cystocentesis or biopsies of diseased organs. This means that diagnoses can sometimes be reached and treatment facilitated without subjecting the animals to a more invasive surgery.

We are excited to offer MRI and CT services to our patients who require advanced imaging options. Both of these options are a safe and minimally invasive method of diagnosing numerous medical conditions. A CT (Computerized Tomography) scan uses x-rays to generate a more detailed view of the inside of your pet’s body. An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging Scan) that uses magnetic fields and radio-waves to take images of organs or other structures inside your pet’s body.

Digital radiography (DR) is anadvanced form of x-ray which produces a digital radiographic image instantly on a computer without waiting for processing.

An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. It’s also known as sonography. This technique is used to visualise muscles, tendons, eyes, blood vessels and many internal abdominal or thoracic organs. Ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure.
