University Animal Clinic Digital Imaging Services:
Radiology (X-Ray) and Ultrasound (Sonogram)
University Animal Clinic is proud to be one of the few veterinary clinics in the Topeka area to have upgraded to fully digital radiographic capability. The increase in sensitivity and clarity of the images is combined with a reduced radiation exposure to both your pet and the staff taking the image. In addition, only a momentary delay occurs between snapping the picture and being able to view it on one of our HD monitors. If positioning is not ideal another shot can be taken immediately.
Digital images can be easily manipulated; zoom in on an area of interest, alter the brightness or contrast of the image or apply different filters to optimize the view of certain tissues.
Digital images are able to be stored, copied onto disks or e-mailed directly to a specialist for futher evaluation. Digital images also simplify submissions to Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) for their hip and elbow dysplasia registries. By providing ideal positioning and proper exposure techniques, your dog's images can be evaluated by OFA's radiologists based entirely on their conformation.
University Animal Clinic has been offering in house ultrasound services since 2005. Ultrasound technology provides a means to visualize many internal organs without the invasiveness of surgery. Ultrasongraphy also allows visual guidance for collecting fluid and cell samples from inside the body cavities.
