When it comes to accurately diagnosing and treating your pet after he or she has experienced an injury or illness, you can count on our veterinary team to have the latest diagnostic equipment. This includes digital radiographs, digital dental radiographs, and ultrasonography.
Injuries and Ailments Diagnosed via Radiology and Ultrasounds
Digital images, including radiographs and ultrasounds are used to diagnose a variety of conditions and ailments in dogs, cats, and exotics. Common conditions diagnosed include broken bones, joint problems, tumors, or skull abnormalities, to name just a few. It can also detect problems with the internal organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and bladder.
Seneca Animal Hospital has invested in a digital radiography machine. This is a type of radiology that uses specialized sensitive plates to capture patient information, and immediately send it to a computer. There is no intermediate plate needed, and the radiographs are ready to evaluate within seconds. The doctors also have the ability to enhance each radiograph by taking a closer look at specific areas in question. They also have the ability to send these radiographs online to veterinary specialists.
Ultrasound imaging uses high frequency sound waves to creates images of the body's internal structures. When our doctors scan the probe over an area of your pet, we are able to find otherwise hidden problems. The ultrasound will detect if your pet has a tumor or has a problem with an internal organ, like the stomach, spleen, liver and pancreas. Ultrasound imaging is completely painless and does not have any side-effects.
