ADVANCED DIAGNOSTICS & X-RAY

The proper diagnosis is crucial to having the best outcome for your horse’s issue. A thorough history and hands on physical examination using standard equipment are the most important early steps in reaching a diagnosis or deciding which imaging modalities would be most helpful.
When imaging is required, G.C.S Veterinary Clinic will utilize the most advanced diagnostic equipment available.
The use of digital technology allows for superior imaging quality in both radiology, ultrasound and endoscopy.
Images can be evaluated for proper technique, exposure and viewed in real time. This greatly increases our diagnostic accuracy and decreases time to treatment.
