Medical Imaging

Medical imaging is a non-invasive way for your veterinarian to see what’s going on inside your pet.
X-rays are helpful in diagnosing and treating a variety of conditions:
  • Heart disease
  • Bladder and kidney stones
  • Lung infections, allergies, and tumors
  • Arthritis
  • Fractures and other trauma
  • Intestinal obstruction or foreign bodies

Some conditions are best diagnosed with ultrasound, CT, or MRI.  If your pet’s treatment plan  requires one of these, we will provide a referral to an appropriate specialist.

Full-Body Digital Radiography

Brintnell Veterinary Hospital has a full suite of digital x-ray equipment.  This means we can have images available for interpretation within minutes.  If we have any questions about your pet’s images, we transmit them electronically to an imaging specialist who assists us in the diagnosis.
