Mobile Animal CT comes to your Veterinary Hospital and performs CT scans right 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 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 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.

Samsung/Neurologica makes a portable CT scanner for every size veterinary patient with gantry size ranging from 28 cm to 85 cm.  Samsung/Neurologica’s portable CT scanners are all FDA certified, ensuring the safety of the operators and patients and delivering the highest quality image.  Mobile Animal CT sells only these scanners to veterinarians because they are the best CT scanners available for the veterinarian and the veterinary patient.

The CereTom® is an 8-slice small-bore Portable CT scanner that delivers the highest quality non-contrast, angiography, and contrast perfusion scans.

The CereTom has a small footprint for easy storage when not in use.  There is no need for a specially designed room or electrical upgrade.  The CereTom goes where it is needed in the hospital – surgical suite, emergency room floor, ICU – wherever you need the scan.  When a patient is too unstable to move, the CereTom will go to the veterinary patient.

The OmniTom® is the newest scanner in Samsung/Neurologica’s portable line up.  It is a truly revolutionary 16 slice portable CT scanner with a larger gantry – at 40 cm – to handle all your small animal patients. The OmniTom®  has the same small footprint as its cousin the CereTom.  The OmniTom is extremely light at 771 pounds and has an internal drive mechanism and innovative wheels that allow it to move 360 (degrees) in any direction.   The OmniTom can maneuver effortlessly into your tightest spaces for precision accuracy in the operating room or for biopsies or around a crowded ICU.

The OmniTom is capable of a 0.625 mm slice and delivers enhanced image contrast and sharpness through advanced noise reduction and metal artifact reduction.   Images are available for immediate viewing and advanced reconstruction includes 3D and multi-planar viewing.

Because the OmniTom is internally shielded and requires no customized room or upgrading of your electrical systems – it is cost effective for the veterinary practitioner.   When not in use, the OmniTom can be stored against a wall – never taking up highly prized floorspace or its own room in your veterinary hospital.

The BodyTom has internal lead shielding and a cutting-edge on-board battery system that plugs into 110 or 220 voltage.  There is no need to specially outfit a room with lead shielding or upgraded electrical – affording the veterinary hospital versatility and enormous cost savings.
