Computed Tomography

Computed Tomography

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. Veterinarians use this specialized equipment and expertise to diagnose problems such as cancer, abnormalities of blood vessels, trauma, and musculoskeletal disorders. Veterinarians request CT imaging to help in:

  • Visualization of complex bone structures, musculoskeletal disease and bone neoplasia
  • Evaluation of disc disease/spinal cord compression
  • Diagnose masses or tumors of the skull
  • Screening for pulmonary metastasis and evaluation of intrathoracic masses
  • Assessment of sinonasal disease and ear disease
  • Plan for surgical repair of joints and complex fractures
