Through Bath Vet Referrals, which is based at the Rosemary Lodge Veterinary Hospital, we are able to offer the advanced imaging of both MRI and CT scans.
MRI, magnetic resonance imaging, produces detailed soft tissue images. Due to the ability of MRI to ‘see through bone’, and image the soft tissue within, it is most useful for brain disease, eyes and for planning cancer surgery.
CT, computed tomography, is essentially a three dimensional x-ray which can provide excellent detail in bone, creating almost perfect 3D reconstructions of joints and excellent detail in moving organs such as lungs. CT has many uses including some of the following common investigations:
-Respiratory disease eg. chronic coughing, difficulty breathing.
-Orthopaedic diseases including elbow dysplasia and spinal fractures
-Soft tissue surgery planning
-Large dogs with abdominal disease.
