Provide Advanced Veterinary Services

As a veterinarian, you want to be able to deliver exceptional services to your clients. As much as possible, you strive to provide all the needed tools for the diagnosis and treatment of their pets. Sometimes a patient needs ultrasound screening to accurately identify their medical condition or rule-out conditions that may be causing the clinical signs. When you need in-house ultrasound imaging, turn to
Ally Veterinary Imaging. Below are some of the reasons why you should work with us and why ultrasound may be indicated.

  1. Ultrasound can “see” abnormalities within the organs that we cannot see with x-rays alone or better define what we see on x-ray images.
  2. Ultrasound is safe and painless; it uses sound waves to produce a picture that allows us to look inside the pet's body, including the organs and internal architecture.
  3. Echocardiography, an ultrasound examination of the heart, allows us to see the heart's internal structures, including the valves.
  4. Ultrasound rarely requires sedation or anesthesia.
  5. This procedure is non-invasive, and there are little to no risks involved.
  6. While ultrasound does not always give us a final diagnosis, ultrasound can guide fine needle aspiration or biopsy of an abnormal structure or mass, allowing more information to be often obtained without an invasive test such as surgery.

Why Work With a Board-Certified Veterinary Radiologist?

Board-certified veterinary radiologists have undergone more rigorous ultrasound training than others who specialize in another field. For example, the ultrasound position statement of the organization that has certified me states, “The ultrasound training requirements in the American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) exceed those of any other specialty organization in veterinary medicine.”

We have extensive ultrasonography experience, including teaching at ultrasound continuing education seminars for general veterinary practitioners. If you want to make sure that your clients' pets will receive prompt ultrasound services and thorough radiographic interpretation, get in touch with us. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
