In August 2017 we became the first and only privately owned veterinary practice in Saskatchewan with the ability to perform CT scans on small animals. A CT scan (also known as a CAT scan or Computed Tomography) is a diagnostic tool that uses very precise x-ray beams to take multiple images of a body area in a slice-like pattern. A computer then combines these images to create a detailed 3D picture, providing us with much more information than a simple, 2 dimensional x-ray.
CT scans are often used to identify tumours as well as to assess and diagnose bone, joint and soft tissue abnormalities/injuries. The images also help to assess organs such as the lungs, liver and kidneys and can also assist in guiding biopsies and surgical planning.
