We offer computed tomography (CT) scans in-hospital for more detailed imaging of chest, abdomen, and skeletal structures. Our CT unit utilizes much lower radiation levels and exposure times than competing units which minimizes radiation to your pet. For this type of scan, absolute stillness is essential, so pets typically receive a short-acting sedative or general anaesthetic.


Radiologic examinations employ state-of-the-art high-detail digital radiography (x-rays), which is much faster and less stressful for your pet. This also allows more specialised studies requiring anaesthesia (myelograms and other contrast studies) to be safer than previously achieved.


Ultrasonography is often the preferred method for imaging soft tissue and internal organs in the non-anesthetised pet. It is a very safe, reliable and inexpensive way to observe abnormalities deeper in the body. The quality of the images obtained using ultrasound is highly dependent on the equipment available and the skill of the person (ultrasonographer) performing the exam.


Echocardiography is a special form of ultrasound that uses a top-of-the-line ultrasound unit to non-invasively ‘look inside the heart’. We are able to employ colour flow and contrast studies to safely diagnose heart conditions.


Fluoroscopy is a special type of x-ray imaging that allows us to see movement of body structures. For example, this type of imaging is very good for looking at dynamic bone instability, collapsing trachea, swallowing disorders, some cardiovascular disorders, and problems with urinary tract function.


Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used to help evaluate the soft tissues like the spinal cord, nerves, intervertebral discs, muscle and associated connective tissue, and the joints. Due to the excellent level of detail that MRI scans can offer, your specialist vet may prefer this method to diagnose brain and spinal cord issues in pets.
