The Cat Clinic is equipped with a mutli-slice CT scanner. A CT (Computed Tomography) uses X-rays to produce cross sectional images which let us look inside complex structures in the body. The use of CT scanning allows us to diagnose many diseases that would otherwise be hidden.
CT scans are most useful to investigate disease of the head, chest and spine. In cats, some CT scans are done with anaesthesia and some while the cat is awake.
