Advanced Imaging

Electrocardiography (EKG)

Electrocardiography checks a pet’s heart health and functioning by measuring heart rhythms and impulses. This advanced imaging technique is painless and non-invasive. Our medical team is trained to gently place pets on their side while positioning electrodes on the body. Results are quickly produced and shared with you.


Ultrasonography is a diagnostic imaging technique that allows us to see, and even listen to, internal body structures. It is important in making an accurate diagnosis of many heart and abdominal conditions and also gives us that ability to further examine vital organs and other anatomies such as joints, bones, tendons, muscles, and more. This technology allows us to keep pets comfortable during the procedure, provides clear, high-resolution images and sound in real-time, and there is no exposure to radiation.

Dr. Robert Krapfl, an ultrasonographer with both experience and confidence in his diagnosis, performs all of our ultrasounds and echocardiograms.


An echocardiogram takes an ultrasound of the heart. This allows our team of veterinary professionals to examine the heart chambers, heart valves, heart walls, and blood flow.

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography is advanced imaging technology that allows us to quickly capture clear and detailed x-ray images of your pet’s internal systems. This state-of-the-art addition to our diagnostic equipment allows for better resolution and greater detail in the radiographs taken here at Prairie Lane Veterinary Hospital. This process is non-invasive and painless.

At Prairie Lane Veterinary Hospital, we commonly use digital radiography to diagnose bone breaks and fractures, intestinal blockages, tumors, bladder stones, arthritis, and more. The radiographs can also be read by a board certified radiologist and the report is usually available within 3 hours. The confidence we have in the expert radiologist will allow for more accurate diagnosis with precise treatment in a timely manner.


A fiber-optic endoscopy/colonoscopy unit is available to help diagnose gastrointestinal disease, take biopsies, and retrieve foreign bodies from the GI tract. Dr. Lackovic directs these endoscopic examinations and biopsies are submitted to a board-certified veterinary pathologist for interpretation.
