Diagnostic Ultrasound: Quicker Diagnosis Means Earlier Treatment

Ultrasound Imaging is now the most utilized imaging procedure in the world in human health care. It has surpassed x-rays, CT scans and MRI's in the number of scans performed. We are proud to be among the small percentage of veterinary hospitals in the United States to offer this high technology service routinely to our patients.

As part of our commitment to offer the most current technologies available in veterinary medicine today, we have purchased equipment capable of diagnosing numerous conditions. Many of these serious problems often go undetected without the benefit of sophisticated technologies.

What are the advantages? Early diagnosis saves lives and money.

The many advantages of Diagnostic Ultrasound to your pet are the same as in human medicine. This technology is capable of diagnosing numerous conditions, many of which would otherwise go undetected. Unlike conventional x-rays, ultrasound can distinguish the differences in soft tissue and reveal the difference between fluid-filled and solid tumors.

Quick, Accurate Diagnosis

If an abnormality is detected, we utilize ultrasound to accurately guide a needle biopsy of tissue requiring laboratory analysis, thus speeding the diagnostic process. Diagnostic Ultrasound is very effective in detecting abnormalities of the abdomen and internal organs. Because Ultrasound is non-invasive and does not require sedation, it is 100% safe and painless.

Early and accurate diagnosis and treatment can be critical to your pet's health and life span. We are here to help you and your special companion enjoy a long, healthy relationship.
