Radiology, Ultrasonography

Radiology

At Riverbend we have digital radiography equipment, which enables us to provide high quality diagnostic x-rays for your animals. In addition to standard diagnostic x-rays, we perform several types of contrast imaging, including intravenous pyelograms and myelograms.

We regularly consult with the board-certified radiologists at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals for assistance with challenging cases. Our digital equipment allows us to send images via e-mail and receive Cornell’s input promptly.

In addition to diagnostic radiography, we perform OFA screening of hips and elbows. The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals is an organization that evaluates x-rays for various congenital and developmental orthopedic disorders and is a useful tool for many breeders.

Ultrasonography

Riverbend has in-house ultrasound capabilities. We use our ultrasound to obtain urine samples, check for pregnancy, and do quick exams for bladder stones, pyometra, or tumors.
