Animal Imaging has a Siemens Somatom Volume Zoom 4 slice CT scanner. This multi-slice CT greatly expands our imaging capabilities, and helps us achieve our goal to provide the best in imaging technology for small animal and equine patients.
The small animal indications for CT will include the following:
- Musculoskeletal-developmental, musculoskeletal disease, bone neoplasia
Thorax-screening for pulmonary metastasis, evaluation of
Abdominal masses/metastatic screening, vascular imaging (e.g. assessment of tumoral perfusion and margins, portosystemic
- Spine-fractures, neoplasia
- Multi-slice scanning translates into shorter anesthesia time (and even allows some studies to be performed using sedation only)
Dr. Echandi and Dr. Gibbons are available for consultation on cases if questions arise on which cross-sectional imaging modality (CT vs MRI) is preferable for a particular patient.
Animal Imaging - visibly better.
