Digital Imaging

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.

Ultrasonography
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.

Digital Radiography
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.

Endoscopic Techniques

  • Bronchoscopy – Procedure which evaluates the internal airways (trachea, bronchi, bronchioles within the lungs) to remove foreign bodies or to obtain tissues or fluid to aid in the diagnosis of respiratory disease.
  • Colonoscopy – Allows visualization of the large intestine (colon) and rectum.
  • Cystoscopy – Allows visualization of the urethra and urinary bladder to search for anatomic abnormalities (ectopic ureters), visualize and biopsy masses, or remove foreign bodies.
  • Endoscopy – Flexible or rigid tube with an attached high-resolution camera which allows visualization of the digestive tract (esophagus, stomach, and small intestine), in order to obtain biopsies and in emergency situations to remove foreign bodies.
  • Orpharyngoscopy – Allows visualization of the back of the throat to asses for foreign bodies, masses, or laryngeal dysfunction.
  • Rhinoscopy – Procedure which allows visualization of the nose, nasal passages, and the nasopharynx.
  • Vaginoscopy – Allows visualization of the vaginal vault, often look for foreign bodies or to obtain biopsies.
