Veterinary CT Scan

Computed tomography provides high resolution single, 2D and 3D radiographic images. It is particularly useful for investigating nasal disease, and head and spinal injuries, often detecting pathology not apparent on conventional radiographs. It is the modality of choice for detection of pulmonary metastases and when used with contrast agents, it allows precise localization of vascular anomalies, such as portosystemic shunts. Applications include:
•Central nervous system, especially in trauma situations
•Nasal cavities and sinuses
•Thoracic cavity
•Abdominal cavity
•Ears and aural cavities
•Orthopedic uses includes fracture repair planning, evaluation of elbow diseases, and angular limb deformities.
