CT Scans for Pets

CT Scans for pets combine X-ray imaging and computer technology to allow for detailed visualizations of various areas of the body. The vets at Cascade Veterinary Referral Center use these images to accurately plan treatment for your pet.

What are CAT/ CT Scans for Pets?

CT/CAT (computed tomography) Scans combine multiple X-Ray images to allow our Tigard veterinarians to identify and diagnose various diseases and disorders in an animal's body. 

In the past few decades, CT has become an essential diagnostic imaging tool in veterinary medicine, and at our Tigard animal hospital.

Historically, CT scans were used to create detailed images of the brain, but technology has evolved to allow us to exam all areas of the body using CT scans, including the spine, nasal cavity, musculoskeletal system, thorax, and extra-thoracic structures.

What is the difference between CT/CAT Scans and X-Rays?

CT/CAT Scans provide more detailed images than X-rays. CT Scans are an important tool that help our Tigard vets in surgical planning for liver tumors, pulmonary tumors, cancers, and other conditions. They can tell us the precise location of the tumor and help minimize surgery time.

How do CT Scans for pets work?

CT Scans for pets combine multiple X-Ray images to generate cross-sectional views and/or 3D images of your pet's internal organs.

They are a fast and painless procedure that can be used to identify abnormalities in your pet's body and recommend appropriate medical surgery, therapy or other effective treatments.

Your pet will likely need to be sedated or anesthetized to ensure high-quality diagnostic results.
