WHAT IS 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.
