A computerized tomography (CT) scan combines a series of X-ray images taken from different angles and uses computer processing to create cross-sectional images, or slices, of the bones, blood vessels and soft tissues inside your pet. CT scan images provide much more detailed information than plain X-rays do.
CT Scans are used to diagnose some conditions with the brain (seizure disorders, brain tumors), spinal problems, to view the nasal and sinus cavities, and many joints. It is used to look for metastasis (the spread) of some cancers, and in planning some specialized surgical procedures.
CT scans will be reviewed by a Board Certified Veterinary Radiologist.
