Diagnostic imaging department

Diagnostic imaging allows veterinary surgeons to look inside the body of an animal in a non-invasive way to obtain more information about the processes that are causing disease. A variety of sophisticated machines and techniques are available today to look inside the body. These techniques, which sometimes need to be combined, are helpful to obtain images of structural lesions, to plan surgeries, and to guide non-invasive sampling of tissues (such as ultrasound or CT-guided fine needle aspirations and biopsies).

In our referral center we offer:

Digital Radiography: x-rays images are available immediately and can be assessed and shared in different workstations.

Ultrasonography: there are two high quality ultrasound machines with low and high field transducers in our center: one for echocardiography and another for non-cardiac ultrasound (studies of the abdomen, thoracic cavity, superficial soft tissues, musculoskeletal system, and ocular ultrasound). Images can be obtained using conventional B-mode, spectral, color-flow and power Doppler.

Computed Tomography (CT): we have a 16-slice spiral Toshiba CT scanner. It is used for the investigation of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen and musculoskeletal system, to diagnose lesions, surgical planning and to do CT-guided sampling.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): we have a high-field 1.5T system providing high-resolution images of the central nervous system and musculoskeletal structures for diagnosis and surgical planning.

The Diagnostic Imaging Service is an essential part of a veterinary referral hospital. It provides support to all the disciplines and is involved in the decision making of our patients.
