Diagnostic Imaging

Our diagnostic imaging suite is a full turnkey provision, with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerised tomography (CT) scan and digital X-ray to assist in the diagnosis of medical and surgical conditions. In particular, MRI scanning is used to diagnose disease or ailments difficult to detect by conventional techniques, and the detailed data provided by the scan can be used to form an effective treatment plan.

Our diagnostic imaging team provides vital support for all disciplines at Paragon Veterinary Referrals, and any scan can be arranged, depending on the patient’s needs. For the majority of referred patients, advanced imaging is essential, and our highly skilled team can analyse images rapidly, in collaboration with colleagues from other disciplines.

We offer scanning for congenital conditions, such as syringohydromyelia in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and incomplete ossification of the humeral condyle in Springers. With experience and expertise in all types of imaging, our team can assist in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of disorders, including:

  • Brain disease
  • Spinal disease
  • Nasal and Airway disease
  • Peri-Ocular disease
  • Middle Ear disease
  • Some musculo-skeletal problems
  • Oncology – establishing tumour margins and metastatic disease
