The Centre for Animal Referral and Emergency is equipped with a large range of advanced diagnostic imaging equipment, as well as an on-site specialist radiologist, Dr Sandra Martig, to optimise our diagnostic imaging capabilities.
When we perform Xrays, a CT scan or an ultrasound, Dr Martig examines the studies and writes a comprehensive report describing the changes and possible diagnoses that could be considered for your pet.
We offer multiple advanced diagnostic imaging modalities. Radiographic studies are performed using digital radiography. Our Phillips Affinity 50 ultrasound machine provides excellent, detailed, abdominal, cardiac and musculoskeletal ultrasound studies, which are performed by our radiologist and internal medicine specialists.
We have recently upgraded our CT machine to a 16-slice Siemens machine, which provides superior, high quality computed tomography images for diagnosis and assessment of musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory, nasal, abdominal and neurological conditions. Our Neurology service includes access to magnetic resonance imaging.
