Diagnostic Imaging

Western Suburbs Vet Clinic prides itself in having quality equipment to aid diagnosis and treatment of your pet's problems.

We have upgraded our Xray system to an AGFA digitalised system.

Diagnostic Imaging

We still have the same Xray generating exposure system, so we still have to wear protective equipment and adhere to rigorous guidelines to minimise staff and animal exposure.

However, the exposed film is now scanned into a specialised computer that digitises the image!

This allows us to manipulate the final image to get a perfect result every time which minimises staff exposure and reduces anaesthetic time for your pet!

The new digital images are of far superior diagnostic quality, and enable us to take accurate measurements and plan procedures accurately.

Also we can email the images (teleradiology) and get feedback from specialists in hours.

We also have an ultrasound imager which enables us to analyse internal organs and take biopsies from deep within the body with great accuracy.
