Diagnostic imaging (radiographs, ultrasound, CT, MRI, fluoroscopy) is a critically important core service at Summit. Having radiologists onsite helps us explore options for imaging so we can select the right test for each pet, perform imaging-assisted sampling, and monitor chronic conditions over time.
About our department:
While every veterinarian receives training for interpretation of diagnostic imaging such as radiographs (x-rays), and many specialists across the country are accustomed to interpreting their own specialized imaging studies (such as CT or MRI), our on-site radiologists play a key part in ensuring your pet receives the most specialized, personalized care.
Availability and referrals:
Pets are not referred directly to the radiology department, but they are seen through other services which facilitate the imaging (including sedation/anesthesia as needed) and report results to the client in the context of the pet’s overall medical condition. Pets needing any imaging other than radiographs are dropped off for all or a portion of the day.
