Computed Tomography is commonly referred to as a CT scan or CAT scan. Computed tomography utilizes rotating x-rays around a patient to make cross-sectional images and is an extremely rapid imaging modality. Modern CT machines can generate hundreds of these cross-sectional images in just seconds. Computed tomography not only aids in the diagnosis of disease and patient prognostics. It is also used as a tool in the planning of the patient's treatment options. Veterinary radiologists often use the CT examination to: • diagnose cancer of the lungs and nasal cavity • diagnose abnormal bloods vessels in the liver • diagnose disorders of the abdomen such as kidney stones • diagnose disorders of bones and joints such as elbow dysplasia • plan and properly administer radiation treatments for tumors • guide biopsies and other minimally invasive procedures • plan surgery
