Dr. Woolman reviews all radiographs taken at TVRH and provides the rest of our team of veterinarians with critical diagnostic information.

Often referred to  as “Diagnostic Imaging”, Radiology is the branch of veterinary medicine dealing with many different imaging modalities such as radiography  (x-rays), CT, MRI, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.  Currently at TVRH,   we are using state-of-the-art ultrasound (Philips HD15) and digital radiography to help improve the life of your pet.

Although all veterinarians receive training in  radiography, board-certified radiologists receive specialized and  intensive training in each of the different modalities.  Typically,  radiologists work with other veterinarians to help obtain and interpret imaging studies. Just as in human medicine, our radiologist reviews all imaging studies performed on our patients.

At TVRH, our Radiologist is available to help pet owners and primary care veterinarians with all aspects of veterinary medical imaging.  Call us if you have any questions or would like to schedule imaging for your patient. 

Pet owners, please contact your primary care veterinarian first.
