Imaging

Caring Hands Animal Hospital has both radiology and ultrasound as diagnostic tools to aid us in providing care for your pet.

An ultrasound, or sonogram, uses sound waves from a probe that are converted into an image. These images are displayed on the monitor, giving the veterinarian a 2-dimensional “picture” of your pet’s organs.  Find out more here.

Radiology (or “x-ray”) is a great diagnostic tool used to image soft-tissue structures, the internal organs, and bones.  Find out more here.

Many times both digital radiographs (X-rays) and ultrasound of your pet are recommended for best evaluation of your pet’s problem. Digital X-rays show the size, shape and position of the organs and the ultrasound allows your veterinarian to see the internal structure of the organs. Ultrasound is very non-invasive and well tolerated by most pets.
