Triage Vets are pleased to offer onsite digital radiography and Ultrasonography to all our patients.
Our digital radiography system permits a high quality image with minimal radiation exposure. This means better diagnostic accuracy, better performance in resolution and image quality and much safer to your pet and the environment. This type of x-ray allows our vets to see a high resolution image, which is instantly available for interpretation enabling us to provide results instantly to benefit your pet.
Our sophisticated machine uses high frequency sound echoes which bounce off structures in the body and are reflected back to the transducer, which converts the waves into electrical signals. A computer converts the pattern of electrical signals into an image, which is displayed on a monitor for interpretation by our vet. This image can be recorded on a film, videotape or as a digital computer image. Ultrasonography allows for a non-invasive way of assessing internal structures in real-time motion, it is effectively used to image internal organs in the abdomen or chest but also eyes, lymph nodes and blood vessels. It is commonly used to detect pregnancy.
