Veterinary Imaging Center

The imaging department at the Expert Center Knowledge Farm (Chavat Daat) Veterinary hospital is the largest department in veterinary imaging in Israel.


The department serves the various departments of the specialist center and performs imaging examinations of all kinds, which are referred to the specialist center from veterinarians from the various clinics throughout the country.

The imaging department has the most advanced capabilities. These capabilities include: CT scans, MRI scans, Ultrasound scans, X-ray.

The advanced imaging equipment and professional staff in the field enable invasive radiology procedures that include ultrasound-guided and CT-guided ultrasound, providing ultrasound-guided therapy and more.

The imaging center is managed by Dr. Asher Zafrani and a team of skilled and experienced imaging technicians. The Imaging Center is open for appointments on Sundays from 9 am to 7 pm and on weekends and holidays by scheduling in advance.

Ultrasound Scans

Ultrasound Scans: This test allows (ultrasound diagnosis) for abdominal cavity, endocrine glands and chest.


This means enabling oncological diagnosis to find and upgrade cancerous tumors and processes. One of the new and breakthrough areas in this field is orthopedic imaging where tendons, muscles and ligaments can be identified.

MRI Scans

MRI Scans: This advanced imaging device is used to scan the central nervous system and the spinal cord. Sometimes, this test is also used by orthopedics for advanced and non-invasive diagnosis of the various soft tissues.

CT Scans

CT Scans: This test is aided by X-ray radiation to create a 3D model of the scanned site. In this way, pathologies can be identified in the abdominal and thoracic cavities.


Using contrast material injected into a vein while scanning allows for diagnosis in areas with extremely rich blood supply. In this way, cancerous tumors, metastases and inflammatory processes can be identified.


The CT is used by clinicians and specialists to diagnose spinal, head and limb pathologies.

3D Scans

The 3D model is a computerized or physical object that is built using segmentation computer software (reconstruction from a 2D computer image to a 3D image) in the desired anatomical section of the patient.

3D printers came into our lives as early as 1983, but came into medical use only in recent years. This process is extremely innovative and is at the forefront of the use of the human medical and veterinary world.


The benefits of the three-dimensional model are reduced operating time, improved decision making, reduced hospitalization times and patient rehabilitation.

X-Ray: This form of imaging is the most common. X-rays photos are done by passing x-rays from one side of the body to the other, where the caste is located which absorbs the rays and translates them into an image, which can be transferred to the computer.


During photography, some of the body's tissues do not allow the X-rays to pass (such as bones), compared to air which permits full passage, while other tissues absorb the X-rays differently, thus creating an image. This veterinary imaging device is routinely used for imaging of the thorax, abdomen, and extremities.
