X-ray and Ultrasound
At Animal Health Centre we make full use of available technology for diagnosis, and this includes specialized equipment for obtaining clear images of your pets insides.
Our X-ray uses a digital processor to produce a computer based DICOM image. This is extremely detailed and can be enlarged and manipulated without distortion so we get the best possible diagnostic information.
We undertake X-Rays, in both plain and contrast formats, to visualize skeleton and soft tissue structures within the body.
We also have access to Digital Ultrasound at our sister clinic in Lower Hutt for examining areas where X-rays aren’t ideal. Ultrasound is better for some soft tissue studies and can be very useful in checking for pregnancy, bladder stones, and other problems within the abdomen.
Specialist Imaging Service
For specialized imaging we have access to a referral centre for when very advanced or expensive equipment is needed. This includes Computer Assisted Tomography (CAT or CT) scans, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans.
