Our Diagnostic Services
The advanced diagnostics at Carolina Veterinary Specialists in Rock Hill include a CT scanner, ultrasound, and digital radiography.
Using these tools, our veterinarians and specialists provide an accurate diagnosis of your pet's medical conditions.
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Also known as a digital x-ray, a radiograph is a kind of photograph that examines the inside of your pet's body and reveals data that may not be visible from the outside.
Radiography is a non-invasive, safe, and painless procedure that involves using minimal doses of radiation. Because radiation levels required to do radiography are very low, even pregnant females and puppies, kittens, and other very young pets can tolerate radiography.
We use radiographs to assess organs and bones, and diagnose conditions including chronic arthritis, bladder stones, broken bones, and some tumors.
With ultrasound imaging, we expose specific parts of the body to high-frequency sound waves to generate images of the body's internal structures.
Ultrasound images are taken in real-time and reveal the movement and structure of the body's internal organs, as well as blood moving through blood vessels.
- CT scan (Computed Tomography)
Our non-invasive, advanced CT scanner helps our specialists examine your pet's internal anatomy by creating extremely detailed cross-sectional images.
This diagnostic machine is commonly used for diagnosing and detecting diseases early, planning surgery, and treating cancer.
