Small Animal Computed Tomography
CT produces information, using X-rays projected from different angles around the patient, which is then processed to produce cross-sectional images. CT is often the modality of choice for skeletal and nasal diseases, acute trauma evaluation, portosystemic shunts, ectopic ureters and pulmonary parenchymal evaluation.
Contrast studies are performed in the region of interest. The careful use of optimal protocols and perfect positioning are important for CT studies. Full body series are discouraged, as the optimisation for each area of interest is needed to extract the most useful information.
DICOM image files of CT studies are interpreted by our specialist radiologists. Imaging Vets offer a personalized service, provided for our veterinary clinics in a relationship of mutual trust, to achieve the best results for the patient.
