A skilled veterinarian can tell a lot about your pet’s health by conducting a thorough hands-on examination.

Sometimes, though, a physical exam isn’t enough. Whether your pet has suffered an injury or is exhibiting unexplained symptoms, diagnostic imaging tests may be required to get a clear picture of what’s going on inside your pet’s body. At Parkview Pet Hospital, we rely on x-ray and ultrasound technologies to diagnose everything from fractures to organ failure, and you can always count on our team to deliver fast, accurate results.

X-RAY & ULTRASOUND FOR
DOGS AND CATS

X-RAYS

In the veterinary world, x-rays are commonly used to examine a pet’s teeth, bones, ligaments, and tendons. They are also used to capture images of the internal organs as well as foreign objects that a patient may have ingested. Digital x-ray equipment is fast, accurate, and provides exceptional detail in still images.

ULTRASOUND

Ultrasound technology uses soundwaves to capture images and videos of soft tissue and fluid-filled organs, such as the spleen, kidneys, liver, reproductive organs, intestinal tract, and eyes. While x-rays can be used to assess the shape and size of an organ, an ultrasound shows a complete picture of the inside of an organ and allows veterinarians to see things that may be hidden on an x-ray.

In many cases, x-rays and ultrasounds are used together to reach and confirm a diagnosis. Both technologies are vital in the world of veterinary medicine and are safe and accurate.
