Radiographs (X-rays) are generally used as a diagnostic tool. More than looking for broken bones, they help to diagnose medical problems of multiple organ systems. Radiographs also are used to monitor the status and progression of various diseases and conditions.
Lynn Animal Hospital is happy to provide digital x-rays as part of it's radiology services. Digital x-rays are faster, easier and require fewer retakes than traditional film x-rays with chemical processing. All of these things will reduce the stress on owners and their pets, and are kinder and gentler to the environment.
We also offer dental radiography to help manage your pet's dental health. A full mouth series of x-rays is standard on every dental patient to help evaluate each and every tooth in your furry friend's mouth.
A modern day convenience of digital radiology is that the images obtained can be sent via internet to owners, specialist and other hospitals at the click of a button, thus unifying patient care and eliminating owner time required to transport traditional x-ray film from hospital to hospital.

Diagnostic ultrasound, also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within your body. Using a small hand held wand (transducer), harmless sound waves are aimed towards the organ to be observed. These sound waves bounce back and are recorded and processed by the computer to produce visible images that can be assessed, measured, and compared to other normal structures to determine if there is any disease processed that may need to be investigated further.
Lynn Animal Hospital offers services with a state of the art video endoscopy for use in imaging the inside of the gastrointestinal tract, the trachea and nasal cavities. A small hose-like fiber-optic cable is inserted in GI tract and the doctors can visualize and assess disease processes from the inside. The endoscope provides one way of reducing the need for surgical intervention by being able to obtain small samples from the inside of the intestinal tract or nasal cavity and removing foreign objects that are sitting in the esophagus and stomach.
