Pet Imaging Services in Elk Grove, CA 95758
We perform in-house digital radiographs to help identify your pet’s problems.
Radiography is the most common and readily available imaging test in veterinary practice. It is used to evaluate the size and shape of organs, such as the heart and lungs, as well as to demonstrate broken bones, some foreign objects, fluid accumulations, and many more abnormalities that may aid in diagnosis.
Radiology is used both alone and in conjunction with other diagnostic methods. The veterinarian must have exceptional expertise in interpreting radiographs, and the radiographs may also be reviewed by a board-certified radiologist as needed.
With great pride, we provide digital radiology (X-rays that are captured digitally rather than on film). With the use of cutting-edge equipment, we can offer you a quicker diagnosis for your pet. Moreover, it emits less radiation than standard X-rays.
Pets need to be perfectly still during an X-ray in order to prevent a fuzzy image. In some circumstances, we might need to sedate your pet or administer a quick-acting anesthetic.
Hatton Veterinary Hospital has the capability to provide a limited ultrasound exam with Dr. Cleary. Ultrasound waves are used in ultrasonography, a form of diagnostic procedure, to provide an imaging study. This implies that we can view internal images of the patient’s body during ultrasonography. Ultrasonography uses no radiation, in contrast to various other imaging procedures like x-rays. Instead, ultrasonography makes a picture of what is inside your pet’s body using high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves. Several common disorders can be detected and assessed painlessly and without any invasiveness using ultrasonography.
