Diagnostic Imaging


  • Diagnostic imaging is the use of specialized diagnostic techniques to further evaluate parts of the body. Diagnostic imaging services provided by the staff of Veterinary Specialists of North Texas (VSNT) include:

    Radiology
    Commonly known as “X-Ray”, radiographs are produced by transmitting a small amount of radiation through a body part to produce an image including the chest, abdomen, spine, skull, or any other area of interest.

  •  

  • Ultrasound
    Ultrasonography uses high frequency sound waves to further evaluate internal organs. Additionally, ultrasound may be used by a doctor to help guide collection of tissue samples for microscopic evaluation.

  •  

  • Computed tomography (CT)
    Computed tomography, more commonly called CT, is the use of a specialized X-ray machine that takes a circular radiograph, or section, through a part of the body. It is especially useful to get a closer look at abnormalities that are located internally . Problems within the chest, abdomen, brain, and spine are especially suited to evaluation.
