Radiography & Ultrasonography
Rutherford Animal Hospital uses a new state of the art digital radiology system. We are one of the few hospitals in New Jersey to have this type of x-ray equipment.. X-ray film is no longer used; images are captured using digital technology. This allows us to use less radiation, as well as have the ability to manipulate the images so we can get the greatest amount of information from them. Our facility also has an ultrasound machine. This technology allows us to obtain images from an animal’s body in a 3-D manner. In this way small tumors or other problems that do not show up on x-rays can be visualized. In addition the heart can be seen in motion and various measurements taken to diagnose different cardiac conditions. We strive to stay on the forefront of medical advances so we can provide your pets with the best possible care.
