Online Image Consultations

For over a decade, Angell has provided consultative imaging services to our referring community. These services have been expanded to include online consultations for our referring veterinary hospitals. In this digital age of imaging, obtaining the opinion of a radiologist via internet transmission enables faster diagnostic evaluations. Our experienced radiologists are partnered with fellow board certified radiologists to provide timely interpretation of your digital images via the Keystone Community imaging application.
