Digital Diagnostic Imaging Services
University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Sydney (UVTHS) is a fully digital Radiology Department comprising of the following services:
- Picture Archive and Communications System (PACS);
- General and Computed Radiography (CR);
- Ultrasound (US);
- Computed Tomography (CT);
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems.
The benefits of Digital Imaging are numerous as the system allows easy imaging access to veterinarians, researchers and students. Clients are able to review pet’s images with their veterinarian during consultation, making the diagnosis and treatment process more efficient. A CD, containing pet’s images and radiology reports can be made available on request.
When visiting the University Veterinary Teaching Hospital Sydney (UVTHS), please supply all relevant x-rays and reports of your pet. This will be entered to the UVTHS PACS systems, where a comprehensive database of patient's record is created. This allows comparison of new studies with previous examinations and is accessible to clinicians at any subsequent visit.
Digital Radiology has proven to be a valuable learning tool for veterinary students. Having access to digital images means that students learn about diagnostic imaging procedures, compare clinical reports and cases and have access to the Radiology Teaching Database.
All imaging modalities are DICOM 3.0 compliant.
