This short video presentation will give you an idea of what our Vimago CT can do.
Big River Vet is proud to present our new 3D CT scanner.
This machine will allow us to perform high resolution CT scans with 3D reconstruction, fluoroscopy, and digital radiographs.
It even has the ability to remove sections of images to get larger, more detailed images of selected areas or lesions.
The addition of the 3D CT scanner means that our patients will no longer have to be referred for advanced imaging.
This allows our patients to remain in the care of the staff and hospital already familiar with that patient and his/her unique situation and requirements.
This patient has 2 herniated discs in the thoracic spine.
The images help localize lesions such as herniated discs for surgical planning. We will only operate on dogs less than 30 lbs with surgical disc disease due to the constraints for nursing care on larger patients.
Spinal surgery varies from $1800-2200 depending on nursing care and hospitalization.
