Imaging in veterinary medicine has advanced greatly since the first radiographs (x-rays) were taken of pets just decades ago.  Today several imaging tests are available to help diagnose and treat diseases in my practice at the Manchester Animal Hospital.  These tests include radiography (x-rays) and ultrasound.  However, in some cases, such as CT and MRI scans, I will refer to major teaching hospitals or referral clinics, where they are available and performed by specialists.  As with all tests, none of them is perfect for every situation.  The following is a brief description of different types of imaging.
