Much of the cutting-edge work carried out at the RVC would not be possible without the specialist expertise and world-class facilities of our Diagnostic Imaging Service. When imaging of any kind is required, cases are assessed using the most up-to-date equipment in the UK.
Specialists within our service are at the forefront of research into all aspects of small animal diagnostic imaging and also at the heart of the clinical work within the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals.
We have one digital radiography suite, and a combined fluoroscopy / computed radiography suite for specialist techniques, including myelography and angiography. We use a high end ultrasound unit allowing for abdominal, thoracic, musculoskeletal and ocular specialist evaluation of our patients. Our MRI suite uses a 1.5 Tesla magnet and we have a multi-slice CT scanner as well as a state-of-the-art gamma camera which enables a full range of scintigraphy studies to be performed.
Radiographic interpretation service
We offer a mail-in radiographic interpretation service for vets, charges apply. Veterinary practices can email or post radiographs with a brief history of the case to the Diagnostic Imaging Service, which will provide a written report by the following business day.
