Veterinary X-Ray and Pet Ultrasound – X-rays and ultrasounds are great diagnostic tools in veterinary care. We use them at Pet Medical Center to find out what’s happening inside your pet’s body in a noninvasive way. Radiography allows us to visualize bone, cartilage, foreign objects, and some kinds of tumors. Ultrasound is more useful in seeing inside of the organs and detecting soft tissue pathology such as tumors, liver and gall bladder disease, kidney disease, cancer, and other degenerative disease of the organs.
Certain kinds of kidney and urinary bladder stones do not show up with X-rays but are very evident with ultrasounds. As is commonly known, ultrasound is a very accurate diagnostic tool in determining pregnancy at as early as 18 to 21 days after conception. Later in pregnancy, ultrasound can be used to monitor the viability of fetuses prior to parturition. Ultrasound can also be used to guide a needle into a diseased organ or a tumor to get a small sample of tissue. This helps us diagnose the disease that is affecting the patient.
The veterinarians at Pet Medical Center of Edmond, Oklahoma, have many years of experience with both kinds of imaging.
At Pet Medical Center, we are dedicated to continually improving our professional knowledge and skill sets along with our medical technology so we can provide better service to our pet patients and clients. We transitioned to digital X-ray machines as part of this dedication.
A few of the benefits of digital radiography include:
