Sondel Family Veterinary Clinic
Although CT uses comparable technology to x-rays, it offers significantly more detail than standard x-rays.
At Sondel Family Veterinary Clinic, fundamental benefit of CT over x-rays is that it gives us a more detailed cross-sectional view of the body, which is especially useful when examining soft tissues and bone structures. IV contrast agents are sometimes used to improve CT pictures.
Light anaesthesia is used to keep your pet perfectly calm throughout the process even though it is painless. Routine bloodwork and chest X-rays may be carried out prior to anaesthesia since it is our top priority to keep your pet as healthy as possible so they can be good anaesthetic candidates.
