Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic Imaging is the specialty that using different technologies allows to observe the interior of the body and reproduce through images the structures and internal organs to look for signs about a disease. It is usually a specialty of support to others, which thanks to its technology facilitates diagnosis.

In our clinic, depending on the symptoms of the patient and the part of the body that must be examined, some techniques or others are used.

Digital radiology

The digital radiology with respect to the analog or traditional radiology, differs in the physical form of obtaining the radiological image. While in traditional radiology, the support is a photostimulable film that needs a chemical process to be visible (revealed), digital radiology obtains a data file, which in broad strokes, can be acquired indirectly or directly.

This data file, after complex physical processes that escape the objective of this description, are translated into a binary file that can be interpreted by software, which converts it into a grayscale image, which can be visualized in a monitor, saved as a file and / or sent through communication systems as simple as email or more complex as a communication and image file system (PACS = Picture archiving and communication system).

Ultrasound

Veterinary ultrasound has now become an indispensable tool for clinical diagnosis. It is very useful for gynecological, cardiac diagnosis, diagnosis of pregnancy and follow-up, renal, hepatic, vascular problems, early detection of tumors, etc.

In our facilities we have own equipment to perform ultrasound scans, which allows us to have the information that this type of test provides, quickly and in-situ, without having to move the animal to other facilities.

Thanks to this type of equipment we can diagnose pathologies such as:

  • Pericardial effusion

  • Pleural effusion

  • Hemeabdominal

  • Diaphragmatic hernia

  • Heart insufficiencies

  • Thoracic pathology

  • Peritonitis

  • Gestational follow-up

  • Splenic torsion

  • Mesenteric torsion
