Digital radiography is an instrument used to evaluate the function and integrity of structures within the body. These diagnostics allow us to achieve 2 dimensional images of muscles, tendons, ligaments, vasculature, bones and organ systems. The highly sensitive x-ray screen that records the digital image allows us to have the ability to magnify images, acquire specific measurements, and assess structures as fine as hair to as thick as vertebral bodies from the same image.
Ultrasound with color flow Doppler allows us to assess blood flow, tissue density, real time motion (heart function/rate and fetal movement in utero) as well as aiding in specific guided deep needle biopsy.
Ultrasound is a unique and advanced diagnostic tool that allows better visualization of the abdomen and a more thorough look at internal organs than x-rays in some cases.
Our in-house laboratory facilities include serum chemistry, hematology, serology and parasite testing capabilities. When necessary, we use university and veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics.
