Imaging Facilities at Bilgola Vet
Bilgola Vet Clinic is equipped with an extensive range of diagnostic tools and equipment. With access to digital X-ray, ultrasound and endoscopy on site we are able to investigate complex conditions to find a diagnosis and begin treatment for your pet.
Our vet clinic is equipped with a fast processing digital x-ray. This allows our vets to visualise soft tissue, bone and deep structures of the body. This non invasive technology allows us to assess how your pet is functioning, leading to an earlier diagnosis and ultimately faster treatment.
These high quality images are permanently stored and can easily be forwarded to specialist radiologists in more complex cases.
In addition to our digital x-ray, we also possess state of the art dental x-ray equipment. This technology is crucial in finding pathology we would otherwise miss in a normal oral examination.
We are also able to detect diseases such as:
Tooth root abscesses
Feline resorptive lesions
Complementing our digital Xray machine, we can further diagnose with the assistance of an in house Ultrasound machine.
This is a stress free, painless modality that provides us with a real time image of organ function.
It also allows us to see foreign bodies in the intestines, fluid in the chest cavity and masses in the abdomen.
For more complex cases, ultrasonography specialists from NARS (Northside Animal Referral Specialists) can be called to perform a specialist ultrasound at Bilgola Vet Clinic.
