Diagnostics Imaging


Ultrasound diagnostics is especially suited for diagnosing diseases of internal organs. It helps to confirm suspected cases of heart, lung, lever, kidney and urinary tract diseases.


The Clinic for Ruminants has used endoscopy as a routine diagnostic tool to supplement the clinical examination for several years. It helps to analyse the surfaces of hollow organs and to evaluate changes in a quantitative manner. Furthermore, endoscopy allows the physician to observe the tissue sample collecting procedure. Using endoscopy, even minimal invasive surgical interventions are possible.

X-ray, CT scan and MRI

In collaboration with the Clinical Unit of Diagnostic Imaging of the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna, additional diagnostics imaging methods such as x-ray, CT scan and MRI are successfully conducted. CT scan and MRI are especially suited for confirming clinically suspected diagnoses of the central nervous system.
