Veterinary Radiology in Everett

A Closer Look at Your Pet’s Health

Radiology is an important tool in the ongoing care of your pet. At Diamond Veterinary Hospital, we offer digital x-rays and ultrasounds onsite to assist with our diagnoses of your pet. While a regular physical exam can tell us a lot about your pet’s condition, there are limitations as to what our veterinary team can see and feel. If we have reason to believe there is something going on under your pet’s fur, we will use radiological tools to help us get an even closer look at your pet’s internal systems.

If you suspect your pet has taken a fall or swallowed something they shouldn’t have, don’t wait! Call (425) 230-6880 or contact us online to schedule an appointment.

X-Rays & Ultrasounds: Powerful Technologies

As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited practice, Diamond Veterinary Hospital offers both digital x-rays and ultrasounds, which help your veterinarian in Everett to “see” beyond your pet’s fur. The main difference between these two types of radiology is what these methods take images of: x-rays can image the solid or dense parts of your pet’s body, while ultrasounds can image the soft tissues. Importantly, both of these methods are pain-free and non-invasive.

Digital X-Rays at Diamond Veterinary Hospital

Digital x-rays use electromagnetic radiation to capture images of the solid or dense parts of your pet’s body, such as bone or muscle. We use digital technology, which is a faster technology than traditional methods and can produce images with a higher degree of detail.

X-rays are best used for:

  • Getting clear images of bones and muscles
  • Diagnosing traumatic injuries
  • Monitoring broken bones
  • Locating foreign objects
  • Identifying tumors

While x-rays are very powerful, if we suspect your pet is experiencing an issue with their internal organs, we will instead order an ultrasound.

Ultrasounds at Diamond Veterinary Hospital

Ultrasounds use high-frequency soundwaves to capture images of your pet’s soft tissues. These images can be viewed in real-time on a computer monitor, though we can print still images as well. Because ultrasounds do not use radiation to produce images, they are safe for use on delicate tissues and with pregnant pets.

Ultrasounds are best used for:

  • Examining the heart
  • Inspecting lumps or masses
  • Monitoring pregnancy
  • Diagnosing possible organ damage

Because ultrasounds cannot penetrate bones or other dense tissues, if we suspect that your pet is experiencing an issue with their bones or muscles, we will order an x-ray.
