Here at St. Matthews Animal Clinic, we are proud to have a state of the art ultrasound by Oncura. We have the ability to perform a telemedicine ultrasound using an internet connection, SonixTelemed and our remote support tool enables real-time interaction with an Oncura Partners Diagnostics trained sonographer who can control the SonixTablet remotely.
With an integrated HD camera, the sonographer can see how the patient is being scanned, help with measurements, change settings, and offer tips on acquiring the proper scan.
Upon acquiring the scan, our board-certified specialists can easily access those images to quickly provide a consult within six-hours following routine submissions and two-hours for STAT interpretations.
Diagnosing by Ultrasound
Ultrasounds are great for diagnosing patients. The ultrasounding procedure itself is quick and painless. It also is better than radiographs since it does not use any harmful radiation.
Instead, ultrasounds use sounds waves to allow us to look inside your pet’s bodies to help us diagnose their problems. Ultrasounds are often a better alternative to radiographs because they allow us to clearly see your pet’s vital organs. Also some conditions can only be diagnosed using ultrasounds.
Not many veterinary clinics have ultrasounds, so they are stuck taking radiographs. Due to this fact, we are proud to be able to offer you the choice between radiographs and ultrasounds.
We are happy to be able to offer you all of the very best diagnostic tools so your pets start to feel better. The sooner we can diagnose your pets, the quicker we can start treatment, and the faster they will be back to their normal selves.
Don’t hesitate to call us today at (502) 895-8100 if you would like to schedule an ultrasound for your pets or if you have any questions.
