We are able to offer onsite expert diagnostic imaging. Sue Spence is our visiting specialist; Sue has post graduate qualifications in diagnostic imaging techniques including ultrasonography and radiology.
Ultrasonography is a technique that uses a probe that emits high frequency waves to create images of internal organs; including abdominal organs and the heart. This can, in most circumstances, be done without having to sedate the patient that makes it a very safe and valuable diagnostic tool.
With the help of Sue we are able to diagnose conditions that may have, in the past, required referral to an external referral centre. This allows diagnostics to be carried out in a familiar environment for your pet, also meaning they can return home on the same day. Sue visits our Dalblair Road Surgery every 2 weeks to perform the more challenging ultrasound cases.
