Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging

Digital Radiography (Xray)

With advanced imaging capabilities on-site, our doctors are able to obtain rapid diagnoses and implement appropriate treatment protocols as early as possible.


BSVES provides a range of diagnostic imaging services, including inpatient and outpatient abdominal ultrasound. Services include:

  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • Cardiac ultrasound (Dr. Johnson only)
  • Ultrasound-guided biopsies and aspirates

Computed Tomography (CT) scanner

Ultrasound is a uniquely valuable technology because it allows visualization of internal organs, assessment for abnormal fluid accumulation that occurs in certain diseases, and provides a tremendous amount of information to aid in the diagnosis of a large range of conditions.

If you or your veterinarian believes your pet would benefit from an ultrasound examination, please call to schedule an appointment.

Digital Radiography (Xray)


The radiology equipment at BSVES includes a high-quality digital radiology suite that provides high-resolution images. Our doctors are well trained in interpretation of X-ray studies, but they also benefit from the added experience of the board-certified radiologist at our sister hospital, Ocean State Veterinary Specialists. The radiologist formally interprets all images taken at BSVES.

Dr. Susan Newell, the radiologist at OSVS, is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Radiology (ACVR) and has almost 20 years of experience in the field. In addition to reading the X-ray studies for BSVES, Dr. Newell is available at OSVS to provide ultrasound, CT, and MRI scanning, as well as radioactive iodine therapy for cats with hyperthyroidism.
