Double Oak Mountain Animal Clinic is proud to feature on-site digital radiology (x-ray) and minimally invasive state-of-the-art ultrasound to aid in the diagnosis of many diseases and conditions.
Radiology (X-Ray) is one of the common digital imaging procedure in veterinary practice. X-rays are typically used for imaging bones, foreign objects, and large body cavities. They can help detect fractures, tumors, injuries, infections, and deformities. The procedure is typically painless but sedation can be used to relax your pet to give an anxiety free time.
Ultrasound is also a common digital imaging procedure and can be used to diagnose soft-tissue areas that x-ray cannot. It uses ultrasonic sound waves to create images of body structures based on the pattern of echoes reflected from the tissues and organs. It can scan abdominal organs, heart, eyes and reproductive organs. An ultrasound can evaluate symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, straining to urinate or urinating blood. This test can also be helpful in cases of reproductive abnormalities, unexplained fever, loss of appetite or weight loss. This test can help detect changes in the shape, size, tissue density, internal structure, and position of organs. It is painless and noninvasive procedure to ensure your pet’s health. Ultrasound usually compliments radiographs in many cases.
