Computerized Tomography (CT Scans)
Highway 58 Animal Hospital offers pet owners in Chattanooga, Hixson, and Ooltewah some of the most advanced diagnostic tools in veterinary medicine. One of the latest additions to our array of cutting edge diagnostic equipment is Computerized Tomography (CT). CT, or CAT scan, is an extremely sensitive tool that is useful for diagnosing disorders in a multitude of body systems.
CT scans are 3 dimensional x-rays that allow our veterinarians to see the body’s organs and skeletal structure as a whole, in addition to a cross section of any “slice” of the image. Our veterinarians often choose to perform a CT scan in order to gain information that an x-ray or ultrasound cannot provide.
The CT scan at Highway 58 Animal Hospital gives us the highest resolution images to visualize the cause of concern. This procedure is very safe for your pet, and gives us the information needed to properly treat many types of diseases.
