Pioneering non-surgical treatment.
The Radiology Department is staffed by Alaina Carr, DVM, Diplomate ACVR and Diane Saulnier, DVM, Diplomate ACVR. The radiology service plays a vital and supportive role in the day to day operations of Seattle Veterinary Specialists. The service aids in diagnosing the underlying etiologies for presenting clinical signs utilizing modalities associated with diagnostic imaging. Using state-of- the- art digital radiography (Kirkland and Downtown) and fluoroscopy (Kirkland), we provide diagnostic studies as well as numerous special procedures. At both locations, we're able to offer diagnostic ultrasound with ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration and ultrasound guided biopsies. Computed Tomographic (CT) is available to provide cross sectional imaging of the body including the skull and thorax in both locations, as well. Interventional radiology procedures and therapeutic injections are performed under ultrasound or CT guidance. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of neurologic disorders is provided through the neurology service. In addition, we offer MRI studies of the abdomen and musculoskeletal structures.
