Radiology

Here at Riverbend we have digital radiography equipment, which enables us to provide high quality diagnostic x-rays. 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 more 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.
