Computer Assisted Tomography

Vimago HD CT, is a high definition CT Scanner that allows us to take very detailed, extremely high resolution images of your pet.

CT is used in veterinary medicine to diagnose several conditions that are not visible through other modalities such as ultrasound and MRI. Several conditions diagnosed through CT are fragmented medial coronoid process (FMCP) and osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), which are common conditions of juvenile, medium to large-breed dogs. Other conditions include complex/articular fractures, patella luxation, spinal lesions, metastatic diseases and neoplasms, middle-ear disease and nasal cavity disease.

Why We Use Vimago HD CT
Vimago HD CT is the most advanced CT scanner available for use in veterinary medicine. Vimago was designed specifically for veterinary medicine. With image resolution that is 1481 times higher than standard CT. Vimago HD CT allows us to see and diagnose things that would likely be missed by other CT scanners.

In addition to superior image quality, our Vimago system also has onboard Digital x-ray and Fluoroscopy, which gives us additional imaging options. Most importantly, Vimago uses 60-90% less radiation than standard CT, making it vastly safer for your pet and our staff. This also allows us to be with your pet during the entire study, making it a more comfortable experience for your pet.

Other Specialty Services

This new laser has the capabilities due to cutting edge technology to not only decrease inflammation but also to stimulate stem cell growth. Artemis can used by itself to treat some conditions or together with the hyperbaric chamber. The conditions that Artemis can improve are the same as the hyperbaric. Artemis has recently been used in treatment of acute renal failure.

Can be used for diagnosis and treatment for specific conditions such as collapsed tracheas, placement of devices in certain heart conditions

A treatment modality that can be used to treat but not limited to osteoarthritis, multiple neurological injuries or diseases’, large wounds, non-healing wounds, pancreatitis, and Lyme disease. .The theory behind the chamber is to use oxygen at increased atmospheric pressure to improve the specific condition. See hyperbaric chamber on web site for more info.

Quicker recovery and less pain for your pet. This is minimal invasive surgery for your pet. Examples of procedures spay, exploratory with biopsies and many others

These scopes will allow us to retrieve some gastrointestinal foreign bodies, or get biopsies. Going into the lungs, these scopes will allow us to visualize actual lung tissue and retrieve samples for diagnostics.
