Veterinary CT Scan
A picture is worth a thousand words. The Animal Medical Center of Seattle is delighted to offer state-of-the-art Computed Tomography (CT) scanning and diagnostic services to our veterinary referral community in the Seattle area. Our GE 64 slice CT is one of the most advanced scanners available, providing a high image resolution and faster scan time, which means less time spent under anesthesia. Types of cases we see on an inpatient and outpatient basis are nasal disease/epistaxis, known abdominal or thoracic masses, surgical planning and nasopharyngeal stenosis.

Out Patient CT Form
In addition to our GE 64 slice CT, the Animal Medical Center now has a Cone Beam CT scanner! Cone Beam CT (CBCT) is a special kind of CT scan that is used for the head and extremities (legs and paws). It uses lower levels of radiation than conventional CT and creates a higher resolution image. Our system is fully portable, so it can be used in the dental suite or operating room and doesn’t require the patient to be moved. It completes the scan in only 17 seconds and is especially suited for use in dentistry, ophthalmology, and orthopedics.
CBCT for Dentistry.
Our dental department will be using CBCT for most patients. The CT images, combined with intraoral radiographs, will allow us to assess patients for conditions like periodontal disease, oral tumors, jaw fractures, and disease of the pulp. Our software creates a 3-D model of each patient that makes visualizing pathology easier. Our CBCT will help us plan extractions, root canal procedures, and oral surgeries. Our software will allow us to share images with referring veterinarians. Owners will also receive a copy of the CT scan and software to view the images also if owners would like to explore their pets’ images.
