Providing Insight for
Targeted Treatment

Diagnostic Radiology

Diagnostic radiology utilises advanced imaging equipment to aid in the diagnosis of patients' conditions in a minimally-invasive manner.


Led by a board-certified specialist radiologist, the department works closely with the referring veterinarian and clinicians from other departments to determine the imaging modality best suited to the patient. The images are then interpreted by a specialist radiologist to provide more information for patient care. 

With the use of diagnostic imaging, veterinarians are better equipped to arrive at a prompt and accurate diagnosis and recommend optimal treatment plans.


Imaging Services



Our 32-slice CT scanner allows for cross-sectional imaging of skeletal, vascular and soft tissue structures within minutes. This allows for rapid and accurate diagnoses in a minimally-invasive manner. Sedation or general anasethesia is required for the procedure.

Digital Radiography

Radiographs are an efficient and simple way to evaluate the patient's thorax, abdomen and musculoskeletal system. Sedation is often required depending on the imaging requirements.



Our ultrasound machine is equipped to provide high resolution abdominal, thoracic, cardiac and musculoskeletal imaging. Sedation may be required to help your pet feel more comfortable during the procedure.
