Advanced Imaging

Digital Radiology

When an external exam simply does not provide all the answers for your pet, our hospital is equipped with the most advanced imaging technology available. Digital X-Ray imaging is the standard of care for progressive veterinary hospitals, and it allows our doctors to make immediate decisions for the health of your pet.

X-Rays can be extremely beneficial in cases including:

  • Fractures or breaks
  • Items swallowed by your pet
  • Tumors
  • Bladder stones
  • Joint issues
  • Other cases where physical exam does not reveal an underlying problem

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Marina Animal Clinic has a state-of-the-art veterinary ultrasound machine, a non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology that uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs. As the sound waves travel into the body they return three-dimensional images (length, width, and depth) of certain organs, allowing our veterinarians to see the results in real-time. We can visualize how the organs are moving and how blood is flowing through the dog or cat at the time of the procedure.

We utilize ultrasound technology for:

  • Evaluating reproductive organs (pregnancy evaluation)
  • Evaluating cardiac function
  • Evaluating abdominal organs (liver, kidney, pancreas, spleen, intestines, stomach, lymph nodes, bladder)
