WAVES provides a comprehensive diagnostic imaging service for all of our veterinary patients as well as an outpatient imaging service for referring veterinarians. Diagnostic Imaging forms the basis of many of the investigations required by our other specialties. Diagnostic imaging involves the use of multiple imaging modalities to help obtain a diagnosis, determine the extent of disease and monitor disease progression. Services currently provided include digital radiography, ultrasonography, echocardiography and computed tomography.
The WAVES outpatient imaging service allows the veterinarian to gain access to advanced imaging modalities to facilitate a diagnosis and direct treatment options whilst still retaining control of the patient. Animals can be referred directly to the diagnostic imaging service on an appointment basis. Comprehensive reports are e-mailed to the referring vet within 24 hours. All our equipment is digitalised allowing optimal visibility of pathology as well as being able to store all our images centrally on a PACS (picture archiving system). CT and radiographic referrals have their images returned to the referring vet on a CD with its own interpretation program.
Examples of direct referral of patients to the diagnostic imaging service include:
Our service provides high quality, compassionate clinical care to patients through the use of medical imaging technology.
