What is CT, and How it works

In conjunction with Equicare, Blue Hills Veterinary Hospital is delighted to offer clients the availability of our latest diagnostic imaging modality – Computerized Tomography (CT scan). CT is now available to Equine and Small Animal patients, and referral cases are welcome. Dr Angela Rogers is the attending Practitioner performing the imaging, with the patients under careful veterinary supervision, and the facility is on the premises of Equicare in Blue Hills. This is another leading edge veterinary service being offered by Blue Hills Veterinary Hospital, in the highest and best interests of optimal patient diagnoses, treatment, and care.

What CT is, and How it works
A ‘computed tomography’ (CT) (or ‘computerised axial tomography’ (CAT) scan) uses a computer that takes data from many X-ray images of structures inside a human’s or animal’s body and converts them into pictures on a monitor. Detailed images of internal organs, bone, tendon, and ligamentous structures, are obtained by this type of sophisticated X-ray device. The CT scan can reveal cross-sections, by creating thin slices of anatomical detail, that cannot be seen in conventional X-rays. The CT scan is actually a sophisticated, powerful x-ray that takes 360-degree pictures of internal organs, the spine, vertebrae, bones, tendons, and ligaments, of the body.
