CT Scanning

We offer pet CT scans with 3D capabilities and are open for referrals. This tool will allow better evaluation of the hardest diseases leading to more accurate diagnosis, staging, prognosis and treatment. Along with the CT scanner, we can perform fluoroscopic procedures such as motion studies involving the esophagus, trachea and minimal invasive procedures.

 

Our imaging platform employs High Definition Volumetric Imaging (HDVI) technology, which is a new, proprietary, and patented imaging technology.  Similar to Computed Tomography (CT), it produces incredibly detailed and ultra-high resolution 3D images of your pet's anatomy.  As another advantage, it delivers much less radiation than conventional CT systems, which decreases your pet's radiation exposure. Clinicians receive the market's highest resolution diagnostic images and can review the image data in any angle or orientation leading to superior diagnostic confidence.

Possible studies include: sinus evaluation, full mouth dental imaging, brain tumors/epilepsy evaluation, middle ear problems, suspected degenerative disk and spine diseases, ectopic ureters, cancer evaluation of chest and abdomen, growth related lesions of shoulder and elbow, meniscal tears of the knee, portosystemic shunts, and much more. Feel free to call if you are unsure if CT scanning would be helpful.

 

Sometimes a CT scan will tell you surgery is not an option and palliative care is the best way to proceed. Other times, it allows you to carefully plan a surgery for maximum results with no surprises. Our hope is this will help us further refine the cases and end up with a path to treatment in which client/doctor and patient has the best outcome.
