ADVANCED VETERINARY DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING

To effectively treat a patient, an accurate diagnosis is required.  At Veterinary Specialists Auckland (VSA), we are fortunate to have two Registered Specialist in Diagnostic Imaging  (also known as Veterinary Radiologists) on our team, Dr Devon Thompson and Dr Ben Wernham.  Veterinary Radiologists are highly trained and skilled in performing diagnoses and treatments using radiographs (x-rays), ultrasound and advanced imaging such as CT and MRI scanning.   They are an integral part of the diagnostic process in caring for your pet.

At VSA, we use advanced imaging equipment to obtain radiographs, ultrasound images and CT images.  VSA was the first veterinary hospital in Auckland to offer high-spec CT imaging.  Computed tomography imaging, also known as “CAT scanning” (Computed Axial Tomography) utilises a rotating X-ray tube to acquire images of an animal’s anatomy to allow veterinarians to better make a decision around a treatment plan following an illness or injury. In 2019 a new 64 slice GE scanner was installed at the Sylvia Park hospital.
