Why would my pet need an ultrasound?
An ultrasound is a very useful tool in veterinary medicine. It can be a less-invasive way to diagnose and treat your pet. Having your pet's ultrasound done by Veterinary Radiologist ensures the most thorough and expert exam possible. A Radiologist can catch subtle changes a less trained eye may miss.
How experienced is the radiologist in taking these scans?
It takes years of practice for a veterinarian to fully harness the potential of this tool.
A Veterinary Radiologist undergoes a 4 year residency program with a majority of that time focused on performing and interpreting ultrasound examinations.
