Diagnostic Imaging

Digital Radiology, or Digital X-rays, is one of the most common diagnostic tools in veterinary medicine. X-rays are typically recommended when the results of a physical exam or laboratory screening are abnormal or inconclusive.

At Kingsland Blvd Animal Clinic, we use an enhanced digital x-ray unit to examine a pet’s internal structures, including bones, heart, lungs, abdomen, and other areas. This technology allows us to diagnose a number of conditions including fractures, foreign bodies, and tumors. Our ability to offer the most technologically advanced radiographs benefits your pet in a number of ways, including:

  • Images can be produced in seconds, which means less waiting time for you and your pet.
  • Images can be immediately viewed on a computer monitor for accuracy while your pet is in position on the x-ray table, resulting in a more comfortable experience and less radiation exposure to your pet.
  • Images are clear and can be enhanced, aiding in a more accurate diagnosis.
  • Images can be shared via email, for a second opinion from a specialist or for interpretation from a board-certified radiologist.

Ultrasound

Ultrasonography is a non-invasive state-of-the-art technology that allows our doctors to painlessly examine specific internal organs, primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Ultrasound uses a hand-held probe placed on an area of the body to create a real-time image on a screen by focusing sound waves on a specific area that bounce back and create the image we are able to visualize and then analyze for abnormalities.

Ultrasounds allow us to evaluate the abdomen for tumors or obstructions in the GI tract, obtain a needle-guided sample of specific tissues for biopsy, evaluate the bladder for the presence of urinary stones or tumors, evaluate the potential causes of changes in bloodwork, and investigate the causes of a heart murmur. Pregnancy exams are also available. Several of our doctors are trained in ultrasonography; we also have a board-certified veterinary radiologist who regularly comes to our hospital to perform ultrasound examinations.
