Radiology & Ultrasounds at Wylie Veterinary Hospital

As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited animal hospital, Wylie Veterinary Hospital is equipped with both digital x-ray and ultrasound technology to assist our diagnostic testing. Both types of radiological imaging can be extremely powerful tools in identifying what’s ailing your pet and guiding our treatment.

When physical exams aren’t enough to help us diagnose your pet, our team will turn to either digital x-rays or ultrasounds to help us pinpoint your pet’s issue. X-rays are best used for imaging the solid or dense tissues of your pet’s body, like bones and muscles. Ultrasounds are best used for imaging the soft tissues inside of your pet’s body, like organs, or for monitoring pregnancies. Both of these tools are pain-free and non-invasive! We use diagnostics to help us figure out what’s wrong with your pet without taking invasive measures.

How Do X-Rays Work?

X-rays produce still images either on film or on a computer screen using electromagnetic radiation. We use the latest digital x-ray technology in order to achieve images that have a higher degree of detail than traditional film x-rays. In order to capture a clear image, we may need to sedate your pet for the imaging process.

X-rays are best used for:

  • Clear images of bones or muscles
  • Diagnosing traumatic injuries
  • Monitoring broken bones
  • Locating foreign objects

If we suspect that your pet’s ailment is caused by something related to their organs, we will order an ultrasound instead of an x-ray.

How Do Ultrasounds Work?

Ultrasounds produce real time images on a computer monitor using high frequency soundwaves. We can also print these images as stills. Because ultrasounds do not rely on radiation to produce their images, they are safe for use on pregnant animals.

Ultrasounds are best used for:

  • Inspecting lumps or masses
  • Monitoring pregnancy
  • Diagnosing possible organ damage

Because ultrasounds are best used on soft tissues, we’ll order an x-ray if we need a closer look at your pet’s bones or muscles.
