CT Scan—High Definition 3D Volumetric Imaging

Our office uses the Vimago™ imaging platform. 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 that help better enable diagnoses and aid us with surgical outcomes.

Vimago™ uses considerably less radiation than other devices, with decreased 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), and clinicians can see the data in any angle, thickness or orientation. The results are superior diagnostic confidence and the reason HDVI™ is the new standard for primary imaging.

Reasons Vimago™ Imaging is recommended:

  • Dentistry
  • Tumor identification and assessment
  • Neck and back disc problems and injuries
  • Trauma
  • 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.
