Advanced Imaging

 

Fluoroscopy

As if creating a complete 3-D image of a pet wasn’t enough, our CT machine can provide even more! Fluoroscopy is essentially a real-time radiograph that shoots many images, one after another, in order to create a short video of how your pet’s insides are moving. 

We like to use fluoroscopy because it usually does not require sedation and can often be done with birds while they sit on perches or with a reptile who is resting on a warm towel stress free. Fluoroscopy assists our clinicians in diagnosing conditions related to GI mobility, foreign body assessment, tracheal collapsing and lung function.
