Diagnostic Imaging

At Portland Vets we have an advanced digital x-ray machine that allows us to take very high quality x-rays very quickly and to view them in amazing detail.  We are able to highlight even subtle abnormalities in high resolution. As the pictures are digital they are very quick to take and process so your pet is anaesthetised for far less time making x rays safer, quick, extremely accurate and overall less costly.
We also have an ultrasound machine which is used for non invasive investigation of abdomens or heart disease. Kate Davis MRCVS has a special interest in Ultrasonography and is continually working to improve her skills in this field, and is currently studying for a post graduate certificate in internal medicine which will make her a specialist in internal medicine. Along side Laura Sulsh MRCVS who is studying for a post graduate certificate in Emergency Medicine, ultrasonography and radiology are a large part of these qualifications.
