We are proud and exited to introduce Vision Pet Imaging (VPI) to the Puget Sound veterinary community.

In some cases, it can be difficult to decide on the best imaging modality to utilize. Below is a brief explanation of the imaging modalities and their best applications. Feel free to contact us if you have a question about how to best image a particular patient, given its unique situation.

Ultrasound; indications and sites

  • Signs localized to the abdomen
  • Thoracic masses seen on radiographs
  • Swelling or mass on the cervical region, or unexplained hypercalcemia
  • Lameness localized to the shoulder or other specific tendinous or muscular region
  • Swelling around the eyes or head

CT; indications and sites

  • Nasal and sinus disease
  • Exopthalmia; including swelling around the head or globe and pain when opening the mouth
  • Thoracic disease not adequately characterized on radiographs, or for pre-surgical planning
  • Middle or inner ear disease
  • Trauma; primarily skull or vertebral involvement
  • Elbow disease; and other bone disorders such as OCD
  • Brain; specifically for pituitary macroadenomas
  • Abdominal disease not fully characterized by abdominal ultrasound (uncommon)
  • Soft tissue masses; to determine accurate tumor margins, including cervical masses or swellings
  • Intervertebral disc disease in chondrodystrophic dogs

MRI; indications and sites

  • Brain; neurologic signs localized to the brain
  • Spine
  • Soft tissue musculoskeletal disorders such as shoulder or stifle lameness unable to be accurately diagnosed by ultrasound and radiographs
