Diagnostic Imaging at Suburban Animal Hospital
When a cat or dog is ill, it can be challenging to determine the underlying cause. At Suburban Animal Hospital, we use advanced imaging technology to diagnose and treat our patients properly. Suburban Animal Hospital offers a range of diagnostic tools to help us identify and treat any problems your pet may be experiencing. We also run an in-house laboratory, which allows our team to provide you with results quickly and efficiently.
Our Advanced Diagnostic Screening Technologies
Our Imaging Tools
At Suburban Animal Hospital, we use digital radiography (x-ray) and ultrasound technology to provide a thorough examination of your pet’s internal health. Like human-centered care, both techniques are very safe, and each offers unique advantages in various situations.
Digital X-Ray Technology
Digital x-rays are beneficial to show changes in bone, irregular shapes in the abdomen, or the presence of foreign objects. Common reasons we may recommend a radiograph include the occurrence of broken bones, suspected injuries, or to confirm a pregnancy.
At Suburban Animal Hospital, one of the most important tools at our disposal are digital x-rays. Digital technology allows us to examine and distribute images much more quickly and requires less radiation than conventional methods. Similar to the transition from film to digital photography, the use of digital imaging is a significant advancement in veterinary care, and we are proud to provide this service for you.
Ultrasounds are valuable when we need to monitor real-time organ or blood activity. Exams are non-invasive, require no chemicals, and can provide images from various angles quickly and easily. Ultrasound technology is often used to evaluate the abdominal region, and the chest, heart, and any suspicious masses.
