Advanced Diagnostic Imaging Services
Suburban Animal Hospital offers a range of diagnostic tools to help us identify and treat any problems your pet may be experiencing. We also run an in-house laboratory, which allows our team to provide you with results quickly and efficiently.
Our Imaging Tools
At Suburban Animal Hospital, we use both digital radiography (x-ray) and ultrasound technology to provide a thorough examination of your pet’s internal health. Similar to human-centered care, both techniques are very safe and each offers unique advantages in various situations.
Ultrasounds are valuable when we need to monitor real-time organ or blood activity. Exams are noninvasive, require no chemicals, and can provide images from various angles quickly and easily. Ultrasound technology is often used to evaluate the abdominal region, as well as the chest, heart, and any suspicious masses.
Digital x-rays are especially useful to show changes in bone, irregular shapes in the abdomen, or the presence of foreign objects. Common reasons we may recommend a radiograph include the occurrence of broken bones, suspected injuries, or to confirm a pregnancy.
At Suburban Animal Hospital, one of the most important tools at our disposal are digital x-rays. Digital technology allows us to examine and distribute images much more quickly and requires less radiation than conventional methods. Similar to the transition from film to digital photography, the use of digital imaging is a significant advancement in veterinary care, and we are proud to provide this service for you.
