We want to help your pet as quickly and efficiently as possible which is contingent on a proper diagnosis. At TruVet Specialty and Emergency Hospital we are able to diagnose with precision using sophisticated digital diagnostic tools. Our veterinarians will recommend an appropriate course of diagnostics for each patient’s needs.
Ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images of organs and structures in the body. This tool is very useful for evaluating the size and appearance of organs, as well as assessing the presence of masses or fluid without needing a patient to be under anesthesia. This tool can also be used to help to obtain guided biopsy samples.
During a radiographic procedure, an x-ray beam is based through the body which creates black and white picture of internal structures within the body. Often multiple images are taken at different angles for better diagnostic interpretation.
