CT Scan- High Definition 3D Volumetric Imaging
Our office uses the Vimago™ imaging platform. The Vimago™ provides better imaging on reptiles, birds, and many other exotics compared to traditional CT scans.
About Our Vimago™ Imaging Platform
Our Vimago™ imaging platform employs HDVI™ technology, which produces incredibly detailed, 3D images of your pet’s anatomy.
Vimago™ also has onboard Digital Radiography and Fluoroscopy; which allows us to create real-time, moving, x-ray images to help better enable diagnosis and aid us with surgical outcomes.
Vimago™ uses considerably less radiation than other devices, which decreases your pet’s radiation exposure time compared to other imaging techniques.
What is Volumetric Imaging?
HDVI™ (High-Definition Volumetric Imaging) is a new, proprietary and patented imaging technology, similar to CT (Computed Tomography) that provides unprecedented diagnostic and interventional information for clinicians.
HDVI™ technology can provide resolution as small as 0.09mm (about the thickness of a human hair). Clinicians can see the data in any angle, thickness or orientation. The results are superior diagnostic confidence—and why HDVI™ is the new standard for primary imaging.
Reasons Vimago™ Imaging is recommended:
- Tumors: identification and assessment
- Neck and back disc problems and injuries
- Foreign bodies
- Discovering abnormalities anywhere in the body
- To assist in surgical planning
Diagnostic Fluoroscopy may be used for: coughing, swallow studies, shunts, collapsing tracheas and more.
Interventional Fluoroscopy may be used for: biopsies, endoscopy and more.
