CT Scanner

We have a visiting mobile CT scanner which is an essential tool for diagnosing certain conditions which are otherwise difficult to detect. CT scanners provide X-rays of your pet’s internal organs and bones to enable your vet to prescribe the best internal medicine, orthopaedics, soft tissue treatments.

CT scans are an essential tool for veterinarians:

  • To identify tumours
  • To diagnose soft tissue injury
  • To see what is going on in difficult-to-reach areas

Rest assured that your pet won’t feel any discomfort. Since he or she must remain still during the scan, they are sedated and monitored by a qualified veterinary nurse. The table on which will be laying will then advance slowly into the CT scanner for the imaging to take place. The result then appears on a monitor for a qualified technician to review.

About Susan:

"I graduated in 1990 from Glasgow. I did a clinical scholarship in Imaging and sat the RCVS Cert. VR in 1995. I have worked in general small animal practice and emergency out of hours services around the UK and in Australia and have continued to develop my Imaging skills in a practice environment.
Over the last 10 year's I have worked as a Small Animal Imager free-lance in several practices in West of Scotland and in the Small Animal Hospital at Glasgow Vet School and in 2015 I was awarded RCVS Advanced Practitioner Status. I also enjoy teaching ultrasound to undergraduates and vet practitioners.
 
I have 2 dogs who are usually shaved in odd places because they are part of the teaching programme."
