Our veterinary laboratory facilities host precise diagnostic equipment used in preventative care and early detection.
Veterinary diagnostic imaging creates composites of the internal body used to discover disease or injury. Orchard Hills Animal Hospital employs advanced imaging technologies accessed by board certified radiologists, guaranteeing the highest quality of care for our patients.
Radiographs, or X-rays, use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the pet body to highlight objects within. These popular tests can detect a number of abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies, and dental disease. Radiography remains one of the most popular and accurate non-invasive diagnostic tools in the veterinary industry.
Orchard Hills Animal Hospital radiology services include:
- Digital radiographs
- Computed Tomography (CT) – We refer out for this
- Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) – We refer out for this
Some specialized veterinary procedures may require anesthesia. Orthopedic radiographs and contrast studies require the patient remain completely still to work correctly, necessitating sedation in most cases. The duration of sedation is usually short and patient recovery is swift.
Radiology imaging services are available on a daily basis at Orchard Hills Animal Hospital.
