Radiology: 

At MAH, we use the latest in advanced digital radiology as part of your pet's diagnostic care. Radiographs are one of the most important diagnostic tools in veterinary medicine. X-rays are useful for examining your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity, and other areas of the body. An X-ray can detect a fractured bone, tumor, heart problem and locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet's stomach or intestine. X-rays and ultrasound are often utilized together for an even more accurate diagnosis.

MAH’s state-of-the-art, digital X-ray machine offers many benefits for your pet, you, and our staff. Our digital X-ray technology produces clear, detailed images on a computer monitor that allow our medical team to make a more rapid and accurate diagnosis. In addition, because digital X-ray images can be saved on a computer, they can be transmitted quickly by email to outside specialists if a referral or second opinion were necessary.

Digital X-rays are easier and faster to process than traditional film X-rays, resulting in less time on the X-ray table and less stress for your pet. Finally, the harsh chemicals once necessary for developing X-rays are not needed for digital X-rays, reducing potential harm to our staff and the environment.

Ultrasound: 

MAH offers abdominal, cardiac, biopsy-guided, and routine ultrasound services. Ultrasound is a pain free, non-invasive procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce a real-time moving image of your pet's internal organs. The procedure allows the veterinarian to achieve a further depth of detail that complements information obtained from X-ray examinations.

Abdominal ultrasound allows us to fully examine your pet's liver, gallbladder, spleen, adrenal glands, pancreas, kidneys, urinary bladder, and parts of the stomach and intestines. Ultrasound examination of these organs is crucial when a diagnosis depends upon seeing an organ, or when surgery or anesthesia would not be desirable. Abdominal ultrasound has revolutionized the study of liver diseases, and is crucial to treating many types of cancer.

Using the ultrasound image as a guide, surgical biopsies can be obtained without major surgery and your pet can often go home the same day. An ultrasound is typically performed after blood tests, X-rays, and/or a physical examination indicates an underlying problem. Ultrasounds are typically not stressful for your pet and take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to perform.
