Mobile Animal CT comes to your Veterinary Hospital and performs CT scans on site in a specially designed and equipped truck. Mobile Animal CT trucks are built on a 24-foot Ford Econoline chassis/box truck that fits in just over 1 parking space. Veterinarians can order their patient’s CT scan and can continue to perform their daily work flow while the scan is performed.
Veterinarians and their staff are always welcome on the truck scanning unit. Mobile Animal CT will have a physical presence at the requesting hospital for about 1 to 1 ½ hours – from set up to break down. The actual scan times take about 30 – 40 seconds per pass.
Images are available for viewing immediately upon completion of the CT scan. All CT scans are read by a boarded Veterinary Radiologist, usually within 24 hours. Stat readings are available.
Logistics usually allow us to schedule scans next day, with some availability for same day scans on an emergency basis. The care of the patient remains with the referring veterinarian. Mobile Animal CT does not work directly with individual pet owners. Mobile Animal CT only scans at the request of the referring veterinarian.
