Advancing Patient Care

Ultrasound-guided biopsy procedures allow non-surgical biopsy of internal structures to obtain a rapid, minimally invasive diagnosis of many conditions. The radiologist reviews all radiographs taken in the hospital and is available for formal review of radiographs taken by other hospitals.

Specialized radiographic procedures for hip dysplasia (OFA) are available as direct appointments. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and CT scanning are available on site Monday through Saturday. View a gallery of images from select cases diagnosed with advanced imaging.

In addition to diagnostic imaging, the radiologist is responsible for providing Radioactive Iodine therapy for hyperthyroid cats. Ocean State Veterinary Specialists accepts patients based on the referral of the family’s regular veterinarian. If you feel your pet would benefit from the services offered in our Diagnostic Imaging Department, please speak to your veterinarian about a referral.
