Hillsdale Animal Hospital also offers different imaging equipment for your pet. The helps us see any problems that may be occuring internally and allow us to care for those problems as soon as possible. We can use these technologies to better diagnose your pets and start a treatment plan. We use digital radiology (x-ray) and ultrasound imaging at our clinic, allowing us to be able to treat your pets better.
Digital Radiology (X-Ray)
We are pleased to offer digital radiology — what does this mean for your pet? Digital images are superior in detail and quality compared to standard processing film. Digital images are also processed and ready for viewing immediately since they do not have to go through a manual development process. The most exciting part of having digital radiology is that we have access to a board-certified radiologist at all times with just the click of a button! We have the ability to share our images with a boarded radiologist when a second opinion or further evaluation is warranted on images.
Ultrasound is another imaging tool we have available to help diagnose potential problems with your pet. Ultrasound is most commonly used to evaluate the liver, gallbladder, spleen, kidneys, and urinary bladder. Ultrasound allows a more detailed look inside the abdomen and can evaluate organs that cannot be seen on x-ray. Your veterinarian will determine if ultrasound is an appropriate diagnostic test for your pet.
