At Brookline Animal Hospital, we offer the following advanced imaging modalities:
- Digital radiology: Allows visualization of the thoracic cavity, abdominal cavity and skeletal system. Our staff veterinarians are available to immediately evaluate and interpret our radiographs. Any of our radiographs can be e-mailed to and evaluated by a board certified veterinary radiologist to obtain a specialist’s interpretation within hours.
- Abdominal Ultrasound: In comparison to radiographs, ultrasound affords a more detailed evaluation of abdominal organs. In addition, ultrasound allows us to obtain ultrasound guided samples of tissues or fluid for laboratory evaluation. Our staff veterinarians have considerable experience performing and interpreting abdominal and soft tissue ultrasonography.
- Digital Dental Radiology: Allows us to visualize the entire tooth, above and below the gum line. Digital dental radiography aids considerably in the diagnosis and treatment of dental cavities, root abscesses, root fractures, bone resorption, unerupted teeth, and vitality of pulp canal.
- Echocardiography: This is an ultrasound of the heart to evaluate for chamber enlargement, heart muscle thickening or thinning, valvular insufficiencies, changes in velocity of blood flow, pericardial effusion, or congenital defects. We offer complete echocardiography exams and interpretations by a board certified cardiologist with advanced appointment. Preliminary evaluation by our staff veterinarians is available daily.
