Ultrasounds and X-rays allow us to examine the inside of your pet’s body without doing surgeries or using other invasive methods. Our goal is to determine any health issues or support a working diagnosis to provide your pet with the highest quality of veterinary care. If you have any questions about our digital imaging technology, please contact our team at 403-253-7044.
How do you use X-rays?
Our digital X-ray machine enables us to take high-quality radiographs. The machine uses electromagnetic radiation to generate images on our monitor. For example, the digital X-ray machine is vital to our dental procedures. It helps us assess the health of your pet’s teeth by visualizing any problems like a broken root. Digital X-rays allow us to manipulate images in real-time and generate them quicker than traditional machines. We can then email the X-rays to specialists, surgeons or other veterinary clinics when needed.
What do ultrasounds capture?
Like X-rays, ultrasounds allow us to capture various parts of your pet’s body using high-frequency sound wave technology. The machines show the structure of your pet’s organs and even the blood flowing through their vessels. We can take an ultrasound of most pets without sedation or restraints.
