Radiology / Diagnostic Imaging


Radiology is an extremely valuable diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. Parkville Heights Animal Hospital is equipped with a digital radiology machine. Digital radiology is quicker, safer, and more eco-friendly than a conventional x-ray machine. It also gives us the capability to easily enhance images and e-mail them to veterinary specialists or to you.

Radiography is painless, safe, and completely non-invasive, and it uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure needed to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young pets can undergo radiography. Radiographs can be used to evaluate bones as well as the size, shape, and position of many of the body's organs. The size of organs is important because some medical conditions-such as kidney, heart, or liver disease-can alter the size of these organs. The shape and position of organs can be altered or distorted by certain medical conditions, including intestinal blockage or cancer. Tumors, depending on their size and location, can also sometimes be detected using radiography. Radiography can also be used to diagnose bladder stones, broken bones, chronic arthritis, certain spinal cord diseases, and a variety of other conditions.
