What is radiology?

A radiograph (x-ray) is a type of photograph that looks inside the body and displays data that might not be visible from the surface. Radiography may be utilized to look at your pet’s internal organs, including the heart, lungs, abdominal organs, and bones. Radiology can be a handy tool in our diagnostic arsenal for diagnosing your pet accurately. Many advancements in digital x-ray technology have occurred over time; now, we can modify digital pictures taken. This opens up new possibilities for detecting problems that would otherwise go undetected on a normal x-ray scan.

What is ultrasonography?

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of organs and tissues. It is similar to radiology (X-rays) in that it is an imaging technique that may be used alone or in combination with other tests. We can see specific internal organs, such as the heart, kidneys, liver, gallbladder, bladder, spleen, and intestines very well using ultrasound. It’s also helpful in locating and monitoring pregnancy. We collaborate closely with experts – people who have dedicated their lives to imaging – because we want you to get the most out of this fantastic diagnostic tool.

What is endoscopy?

Endoscopy is a diagnostic procedure that uses either a rigid or flexible fiberoptic instrument to allow visual examination of the internal organs without invasive exploratory surgery. A tiny camera at the end of the endoscope transmits images of the body’s internal structures, allowing the Internist to view disease processes and take biopsies for further diagnostics. It can often be used for foreign body removal as well. In some situations, this technique allows for a non-surgical alternative for pets that minimizes anesthesia time and lowers hospitalization and recovery duration.
