Radiography is a safe and valuable tool that helps veterinarians to make more accurate diagnosis and investigate the internal organs of their patients non-invasively. At Vets on Crown, in order to make x-rays safe and stress-free for our patients we have a dedicated purpose-built imaging ward equipped with state-of-the-art machinery. We are pleased to offer high-quality digital radiography technology as a part of our premium diagnostic services to our patients. Digital radiography/x-ray captures high-resolution images that get processed by a sophisticated machine and projects them on a screen instantaneously.
Endoscopy is a non-invasive tool to perform a visual examination of the gastrointestinal system of your pets. Endoscopy can be used to examine the upper gastrointestinal system including the esophagus, stomach and the first part of the small intestine. Alternatively, it’s used to investigate potential issues in the rectum or large intestine. Endoscopy is usually done under general anesthetics. During the procedure, the veterinarian passes a camera down the patient’s stomach or through rectum in order to see potential issues and in some cases collect samples or biopsies. Endoscopy also enables veterinarians to remove some forms of tumors and foreign bodies.
Ultrasonography is a painless non-invasive technology that uses sound waves to produce images of the internal body organs. The computer interprets the reflection of the sound waves and converts them into images, which are called sonograms. Sonography is a brilliant tool to examine primarily heart and abdominal organs, joints, and eyes. With the aid of ultrasonography, we can investigate the presence of tumors, unusual fluids, or inflammation in your furry friend.
