Diagnostic Imaging

VSH uses the latest technology in medical imaging, providing timely and high-quality images needed for the most informed and effective treatment of your pet.

Just as in human medicine, diagnostic imaging techniques such as radiographs (x-rays), ultrasound, MRI, and computed tomography (CT scan) provide information that can aid in diagnosing and treating your pet’s condition. Advanced imaging plays a vital role in the diagnosis of many medical problems.

All imaging exams are performed and reviewed by a member of our experienced Diagnostic Imaging team, with access to a board certified radiologist seven days per week. We offer digital radiography, ultrasound, MRI, CT, and fluoroscopy examinations to aid in your pet’s care and treatment.
