Computed Tomography is commonly referred to as a CT scan or CAT scan. Computed tomography utilizes rotating x-rays around a patient to make cross-sectional images and is an extremely rapid imaging modality. Modern CT machines can generate hundreds of these cross-sectional images in just seconds.
Computed tomography not only aids in the diagnosis of disease and patient prognostics. It is also used as a tool in the planning of the patient's treatment options.
• diagnose cancer of the lungs and nasal cavity
• diagnose abnormal bloods vessels in the liver
• diagnose disorders of the abdomen such as kidney stones
• diagnose disorders of bones and joints such as elbow dysplasia
• plan and properly administer radiation treatments for tumors
• guide biopsies and other minimally invasive procedures
• plan surgery
• one of the best tools for studying the chest and abdomen because it provides detailed, cross-sectional views of all types of tissue.
• often the preferred method for diagnosing many different cancers, since the image allows a veterinarian to confirm the presence of a tumor and measure its size, precise location and the extent of the tumor's involvement with other nearby tissue.
• invaluable in diagnosing and treating spinal problems and injuries to the skeletal structures because it can clearly show even very small bones as well as surrounding tissues such as muscle and blood vessels.
