As a practice, one of our key goals is to offer state-of-the-art medicine and diagnostic testing, so we are pleased to offer CT as a means of providing a higher level of quality care for our patients. Although humans and animals are different in many ways, some advances in human medicine have also become very useful for veterinary patients. One of these advances, computed tomography (CT, formerly called CAT scanning), has proven to be a powerful diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine.
CT uses X-ray technology and sophisticated computers to create images of cross-sectional slices through the body. By examining these sections, we can evaluate small details inside the body. CT can help diagnose a variety of medical conditions in pets, including spinal cord injuries, soft tissue masses, sinus cavity abnormalities, urinary dysfunction, and many others.
Veterinary patients undergoing CT must be placed under general anesthesia or sedation; however, each pet is carefully monitored during and after the procedure to ensure a safe and complete recovery.
As we strive to provide our patients with the highest quality medicine and diagnostic testing, we are pleased to offer CT as one of our diagnostic capabilities.
Pet ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that can be used to assess the health of your animal companion. The ultrasound waves produce images of the internal organs, which can help detect soft tissue masses, evaluate abdomen post-trauma, and assist with cystotomy and needle biopsies. Ultrasound is a painless and safe procedure, and most animals tolerate it well.
