Our Diagnostic Services
At our Baltimore lab, we use advanced diagnostics to allow our veterinarians to accurately diagnose your pet's medical issues.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
A radiograph (digital x-ray) is used to examine your pet's internal systems to look at internal structures that are invisible during a casual physical exam.
Radiography is non-invasive, safe and painless. Because only very low doses of radiation are used, even pregnant females and very young pets are able to undergo this procedure.
We can use radiographs to evaluate organs and bones, and diagnose conditions including bladder stones, fractured bones, spinal cord diseases, some tumors and chronic arthritis.
With ultrasound imaging, we can produce images of the inside of your pet's body by exposing part of the body to high-frequency sound waves.
Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, we can see the movement and structure of your pet's internal organs, in addition to blood as it flows through the vessels.
An endoscope is a flexible tube with a very tiny camera and light attached to the end.
During an endoscopy, we insert a long, thin tube directly into the body to observe internal tissues or organs in detail.
Minimally invasive endoscopes can be inserted into the openings of the body, such as the mouth or anus.
