Diagnostic Radiology / Fluoroscopy
Of all the imaging modalities, diagnostic radiology remains the primary diagnostic tool. The newer x-ray equipment is more powerful and reduces the exposure of radiation for the patient and personnel. The Imaging Center has two CR Radiology Suites for diagnostic radiology, and one Fluoroscopy suite for dynamic studies, contrast procedures, as well as interventional procedures.
Using computed radiography (CR) technology, all the radiographic studies are obtained in the digital format and transferred to our PACS system. The entire Imaging Center is filmless. CR allows higher quality of the radiographic studies, increases efficiency in daily workflow, and integrates all imaging studies for each patient.
The C-arm fluoroscopy unit allows dynamic studies, including evaluation for tracheal collapse, swallowing dysfunction, and intravenous pyelography (IVP) for ectopic ureters. Using a subtraction technique, dedicated vascular studies such as the portogram which is used to diagnose abdominal or peripheral vascular anomalies, can easily be performed. It allows interventional procedures such as embolizations of portosystemic shunts and arteriovenous malformations, chemoembolizations, tracheoplasty (tracheal stents), urethral and vascular stenting, and biopsies. The unit can be rotated around the patient to obtain different views without changing the position of the animal.
