The following procedures apply during the CT scan:
- Patients will be placed under sedation or general anaesthetic. The scan itself is very rapid and the animal will be closely monitored by our dedicated team of Vets and Veterinary Nurses.
- Sometimes a special contrast media (dye) needs to be injected into the veins in order to visualise soft tissue structures more clearly.
- The images require detailed expert interpretation so they will be sent to a specialist.
- A CT report will usually be available within a few days and these results will be sent to the referring Vet.
