Vets on Balwyn are proud to be able to offer our patients and clients access to state of the art diagnostic facilities which ensure a fast, accurate diagnosis. We have digital x-ray technology which enables us to capture accurate images of bones, soft tissue and organs. If necessary, we will have the images examined by a veterinary surgeon or radiologist (at no extra cost) to ensure your pet is accurately diagnosed.
In some instances, x-ray technology may not be sophisticated enough to diagnose your pet’s condition and in these cases, we turn to more advanced imaging technology. Ultrasound technology can be used to create images of soft tissue structures such as organs, and this is an option we offer in house. If ultrasound also proves ineffective, we may provide you with a referral to a CT or MRI specialist centre.
Once the results are in, you will be able to review and discuss the findings with one of our veterinarians to determine the best way forward. We will also e-mail you a copy of the results for your records.
