Diagnostic imaging service at Companion Veterinary Specialists utilizes the most advanced tools available to help diagnose your pets’ medical issues. We have incorporated digital radiology into our diagnostic imaging capabilities leading to more immediate treatment and giving our doctors, along with the primary care veterinarians who refer patients to us, the chance to share patient information in a much more time-efficient manner.

In addition to providing state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services to support our veterinary specialists, radiologists also provide film-reading services for your primary-care veterinarian as well as outpatient ultrasounds. Tests performed include:

  • Color-flow doppler ultrasonography
  • Ultrasonography guided biopsy
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
