Susan Galloway recently brought in her furry family member Ruby and had this to say about her CT scan experience. “First time at CVS and we are very impressed with the facility, all the staff and their service. Dr. Bartholomay, and the Technician explained everything to us thoroughly, professionally and patiently. We were impressed and confident with Dr. Bartholomay’s knowledge and expertise. So glad we were able to get a biopsy and ct scan at the same time. Getting these major diagnostic tests done the same day saved us time and travel, but most importantly it made the process less stressful for our fur baby, Ruby. Thank you for these services, Dr. Bartholomay…and thank you for getting that ct scan machine!”

What is a Pet CT Scan and how can it be used?
Our CT imaging device is a robotic, high definition 3D volumetric scanner-fluoroscopy-digital radiography platform that is capable of imaging an entire patient in a single series, and can fit even extremely large dogs. A high definition 3D volumetric imaging system comes from re-inventing and going beyond CT technology. Resolution is as high as 0.09mm x 0.09mm x 0.09mm (isotropic voxels, vastly higher spatial resolution than conventional CT). Any patient from 2oz to 200 lbs, can be effectively imaged.
CT is used in veterinary medicine to diagnose several conditions that are not visible through other modalities such as ultrasound and MRI. Several conditions diagnosed through CT are fragmented medial coronoid process (FMCP) and Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) are common conditions of juvenile, medium to large-breed dogs. Other conditions include complex/articular fractures, spinal lesions, metastatic diseases and neoplasms, masses and tumors, middle-ear disease and nasal cavity disease.
