Want to check out where CUVS has been and what we are doing, locally and nationally? Below is a selection of some of our activities.


CT Scanner

Advanced Diagnostic Imaging
CUVS installs new CT scanner! This 128-slice CT scanner is the most advanced in the region. Most CT scanners used in veterinary medicine are 4-slice or 16-slice. The slice number refers to the number of detectors that are used to make images of the patient each time the gantry of the CT machine turns. So, our new machine creates 128 images of the patient every time the gantry completes a full rotation.
What does this mean for our patients? It means quicker, safer and more accurate scans. Fewer gantry rotations means shorter scan times and reduced motion artefact. As such, we can perform many scans under sedation rather than general anesthesia, the patient has less radiation exposure, and the quality of the diagnostic scans is improved. Advanced technology also enables our staff radiologist, Dr. Seller, Dr. Tarbell and other specialists to review and manipulate CT images in real time as the scan happens, so that the medical team can make immediate decisions treatment decisions. Three-dimensional models can be produced and displayed in our surgery
or dentistry suites to help our specialists visualize the entire area of interest during the procedure.
