Not Just 4 Paws Animal Hospital Offers Diagnostic Imaging
Today's medical technologies have not only helped humans to receive more accurate treatment of illness and injury but have also helped veterinarians provide better care for animals. X-rays, ultrasound, and other state-of-the-art diagnostic tests help veterinarians provide thorough assessments to ensure their pet patients receive the right care. At Not Just 4 Paws Animal Hospital in Canyon Lake, CA, we offer diagnostic imaging tests to help us provide accurate treatments for all our patients. Here are some of the imaging tests we offer.
X-rays have been used in veterinary medicine for many decades. However, new technologies have made x-ray images clearer and safer for animals. Digital imaging has improved the ability to view abnormalities in the hard structures of the body, allowing the vet to make a more accurate diagnosis for effective treatment options. In addition, digitalization has made it easier to share images with other veterinary specialists when needed.
Sonography, usually called ultrasound, has become a regular feature for imaging in veterinary medicine, as it has in human medicine. Ultrasound uses sound waves that bounce off soft tissues inside the body, which echo to produce digital imaging. The vet then carefully assesses these images to understand what's going on inside the body. For example, any changes in the size, shape, or blood flow to the internal organs can be noted. Ultrasound is not just used in reproductive diagnosis but also for issues involving the kidneys, liver, spleen, and abdomen.
Our practice also participates in the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals programs which offer analysis and a database for x-rays used to detect problems such as hip dysplasia and other issues seen in dogs and cats. Involvement in this organization helps us provide the most accurate diagnosis of orthopedic issues and ensure we offer the right treatment for your animal's condition.
