CT Scan

Computed Axial Tomography (also referred to as CAT scan or CT scan) is a versatile imaging procedure that can be used to evaluate almost every part of your pet’s body. Because CT scans are performed under heavy sedation or anesthesia, they are often reserved for cases where a more sensitive diagnostic technique is needed. They can help identify a number of conditions in bones, the chest, spine, nasal cavity and belly. CT scans, interpreted by a board-certified veterinary radiologist, are used by Avets' veterinary specialists, or can be ordered by your primary care veterinarian.
