Diagnostic Imaging

Digital radiography provides immediate high-resolution images that can be enhanced to reveal problems that might be missed with conventional radiography. EVH has two fully digital radiography units: the Eklin unit is mainly used in the radiology suite while the Quattro unit is fully portable for farm calls or stall side use. EVH uses portable radiography machines as well as powerful overhead units in the radiology and surgery suites that are capable of obtaining images of the shoulder, hip, thorax, and abdomen. Digital ultrasound allows us to see in great detail soft tissue structures including tendons, ligaments, lungs, eyes, and internal organs. Our digital ultrasound is equipped with needle enhancement technology to assist in ultrasound guided injections and biopsies. We use a second ultrasound machine for reproductive work.
