Diagnostic Imaging

Our facilities include CT and Ultrasonography

With access to advanced imaging technology, we are committed to providing a quick and accurate diagnosis.



Our CT scanner allows us to rapidly produce detailed images which can be used for any part of the body. All cases are reported by a specialist radiologist where required.

Examples of cases that would benefit from CT, include:

  • Portosystemic shunt diagnosis and full location
  • Tumour staging and investigation
  • Pre-operative surgical resection planning
  • Lameness investigation – especially involving elbows or angular limb deformity
  • Nasal and respiratory disease
  • Acute spinal disease
  • Neurological disease including suspected neoplasia, seizures, head tilt, where MRI unavailable
  • BOAS assessment
  • Middle ear assessment
  • Adrenal and pancreatic disease including insulinoma
  • Superior or additive to ultrasound in almost all abdominal cases in large breed dogs
  • Excellent for radiolucent urethral calculi or cases where there is uncertainty regarding an intestinal foreign body on conventional imaging



Using our high-definition ultrasound and extensive experience we can evaluate and diagnose the following:

  • Adrenal, renal, hepatic, splenic, pancreatic, bladder and intestinal disease
  • Thyroid, parathyroid and laryngeal assessment
  • Location and staging of neoplastic disease including for example, abdominal, thoracic, medial retropharyngeal and caudal cervical lymph nodes
  • Ultrasound guided FNA and Trucut biopsies
  • Tendon and muscle assessment
  • Location of foreign bodies for example, grass seeds in feet, subcutaneous or muscle tissue
