Ultrasonography & Specialist Consultations
We offer non-invasive, and more economical ways of seeing inside your sick pet, without having to use painful surgery as a diagnostic tool.
At Princess Animal Hospital, we have an in-house ultrasound, and use telemedicine technology for same-day, medical specialist consultations. Telemedicine is the transmission of X-ray and ultrasound images via the internet to specialists who are world renowned.
Ultrasonography allows for real time visualization of a number of internal structures and processes. Unlike plain radiographs (x-rays), ultrasound imaging allows us to see the tissue architecture within organs, to visualise the pumping process of the heart and to make accurate measurements of a number of structures within the body. It is also an excellent means of obtaining minimally invasive guided biopsy samples.
With advances in telemedicine, we have access to the best veterinary minds in the world. A report can be sent to us within 20 minutes of your pet's data reaching the specialist.
