Our centre in Epping offers a state-of-the-art ultrasound scanning suite, which allows our veterinary staff to visualise detailed information about your pets’ internal organs. We also have a portable scanner at our surgery in Woodford and Harlow. A completely unobtrusive process, your pet need not undergo an anaesthetic as long as they can remain still for a while.
Ultrasound is an extremely effective way of imaging the movement of fluid in the body and can be utilised for a great deal of procedures. Our latest machine can now produce 3D images with increased clarity and accuracy. The following areas are all very useful using ultrasound imaging:
- Cardiology; discovering whether your pet has any issues with blood flow in the heart or any other abnormalities
- Biopsy; where the ultrasound aids our surgical staff to work with extreme precision
- Pregnancy tests
- Prostate, kidney and other internal organ examinations
