CT Scan MidwestComputed Tomography (CT) is a diagnostic tool that uses x-rays to obtain cross-sectional images of the body. CT is commonly used to image:

- Lungs and other thoracic (chest) structures
- Orthopedic conditions such as elbow dysplasia, complex fractures, tumors or    infections, etc.
- Skull, nasal cavity and sinuses, middle or inner ear disease.
- Can be used to diagnose vascular liver shunts and other abdominal diseases such as adrenal tumors or liver tumors, assisting a surgeon to plan a difficult surgery to remove or treat these abnormalities.

CT can also be used to guide a biopsy of an abnormality within the body less invasively than with surgery. Veterinary patients need to be anesthetized for CT scans, so that they will hold still long enough for the examination. Every patient that presents for a CT scan will receive a thorough physical exam, and will have a review of recent bloodwork and other testing done prior to anesthesia to ensure they are good candidates for anesthesia. Also, every patient anesthetized at our hospital is closely monitored while under anesthesia by a veterinarian and a certified veterinary technician.

Diagnostic Imaging

Veterinarians are not always able to determine a pet’s problem by reviewing of a patient’s medical history and performing a complete physical examination. They often need to perform some type of diagnostic imaging, which may include:

  • Radiography / x-rays
  • Ultrasonography
  • Computer tomography (CT/CAT scan)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Our team of board-certified veterinary specialists and highly trained emergency doctors works closely with board-certified veterinary radiologists to correlate medical image findings with other examinations and test results to help in the diagnosis of many disease conditions. Diagnostic imaging helps our veterinarians evaluate:

  • Musculoskeletal system for bone and muscle disorders
  • Cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary disorders
  • Gastrointestinal and digestive system problems
  • Reproductive organs
  • Urinary elimination systems

We are committed to providing optimal care to our patients using state-of-the-art veterinary diagnostic imaging. We also provide outpatient ultrasonography services for veterinarians through our Internal Medicine Department.
