Other relevant hospital resources include digital radiography; on-site ultrafast 128 slice spiral CT and 3T-MRI; nuclear medicine; and videobronchoscopy. Cardiology works closely with our in-house soft-tissue surgeons as well as pediatric interventional cardiologist from Nationwide Children’s Hospital to perform hybrid and cutting-edge procedures. There are pathology and clinical pathology services available on-site. The OSU Library System includes extensive digital resources as well as Veterinary College and Health Sciences Libraries.
