When it comes to accurately diagnosing and treating your pet after he or she has experienced an injury or illness, you can count on our veterinary team to have the latest diagnostic equipment, including digital imaging devices and ultrasound machines.
Injuries and Ailments Diagnosed via Radiology and Ultrasounds
Digital images, including ultrasounds and radiographs are used to diagnose a variety of conditions and ailments in dogs and cats. Common conditions diagnosed include broken bones, joint problems, tumors, and problems with the internal organs, including the heart, lungs, liver, kidneys and bladder.
Ultrasound imaging involves using sound waves to create an image on a computer monitor. At East Lake Animal Clinic we use ultrasound to diagnose a number of conditions in pets.
The common term for a radiograph is an x-ray. These images can help diagnose problems and conditions with the bones and joints, such as broken bones, swelling in the joints and other types of bone abnormalities. X-rays can also be used to diagnose problems with the internal organs, like the heart, lungs, spleen, liver and kidneys.
