Radiographs are an important diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine. Heart disease, orthopedic/spinal problems, foreign bodies, tumors and stones in the bladder all can be diagnosed with radiographs. North Pole Veterinary Hospital has a newly acquired digital radiography system. The advantages to digital radiology are efficiency, improved image quality and ease of transmitting radiographs to board certified specialists for consultation. We enjoy showing you the radiographs from our new system, and if you have any questions please ask. We can now offer board certified radiologist consultations on any radiograph.
Ultrasound is a diagnostic tool used to non-invasively examine organ systems. Ultrasound can be used to diagnose specific heart diseases, diseases of the liver and spleen as well as confirm early pregnancy and assess fetal health.
