Frequently Asked Questions
What is a CT scan?
CT stands for Computed Tomography. VetCAT CT creates three-dimensional x-ray images of the anatomy, giving doctors unique information to diagnose and plan procedures.
Why is 3D better?
When your Doctor needs to see inside your animal’s anatomy, 3D images show where the problem is exactly. There is no more guessing. If a procedure is needed, the Doctor knows where to go. A faster and more targeted procedure means better recovery and better outcome.
What is special about VetCAT?
VetCAT is designed to image small body parts only. It is small and fast, so your veterinarian can use it in a usual setting. There is no need for a separate trip to a traditional CT scan facility. If a procedure is recommended, it can be done immediately.
How long does a scan take, and is it safe?
The scan only takes a 20 seconds. Results are available immediately. VetCAT scans have a significantly lower radiation dose than full-body scanners in the hospital.
