What to expect

Computed tomography (CT) uses x-rays to produce multiple images of the inside of the body and provides thin, cross-sectional “slices” for viewing internal organs, bone, soft tissue, and blood vessels. We are using the 16 slices GE Healthcare Brivo CT system.

Veterinarians request CT imaging to facilitate:

• Visualization of Complex bone structures, musculoskeletal disorders, and bone neoplasia • Diagnosis of disc diseases and spinal cord compression • Identify skull lumps or tumors • Evaluation of intrathoracic tumors and screening for pulmonary metastases • Assessment of sinonasal disease and ear disease • Planning for surgical repair of joints and complex fractures
