Pet Diagnostic Imaging
At Blue Oasis, every consultation will start with a thorough clinical examination of the patient. However, some cases require further diagnostic testing to gain more information regarding your pets condition. Blue Oasis has state of the art diagnostic imaging equipment, such as Electrocardiogram, Endoscopy, Radiology (X-ray_, Ultrasound (with Doppler Ultrasound) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).
The different techniques complement each other, each having benefits in a different field.
X-rays show changes on the bones, give detailed information on heart and lungs and give a good overview on abdominal organs.
The Ultrasound scanner can pick up details in organ structure and slight abnormalities in organ architecture. Being a life technique, it allows us to see organs 'in action', such as the movements and flow through the heart or the mobility of the guts.
The MRI is the only means that can reach the inner structures of the skull and spine, allowing us to examine the brain, the spinal cord, the inner ear or the insides of joints, that are otherwise difficult or impossible to image.
Our Endoscope allows us to see the inside of lungs or stomach with a non-invasive approach, and the ECG will give information on the electric impulses going through the heart.
Every technique will be used depending on the clinical indication on condition of the patient, to ensure maximum gain of information with minimum distress and discomfort for the patient, because we care more.
