Pet CT and Fluoroscopy
Paws and Claws Pet Care is proud to have the ability to provide advanced imaging to our Valley’s pets.
ABOUT OUR VIMAGO™ IMAGING PLATFORM
The Vimago system is similar to a Computed Tomography (CT) scanner. Still, it has a patented High Definition of Volumetric Imaging (HDVI) technology that creates high-resolution, detailed images in both 2D and 3D with very little radiation. This technology allows for greater detail and improved diagnostic imaging, making it easier and faster to diagnose and, thus, treat patients. The Vimago images of the skull (teeth and sinuses), bones (joints, backs), chest (lungs), abdomen (vasculature), and soft tissue or bony masses can be viewed in both 3D with the layers of the body removed electronically for easier visualization, or in the traditional 2D circular view. The unit also has built-in Fluoroscopy technology, which creates a real-time radiograph in motion and can be used for many applications, including coughing, swallow studies, shunts, collapsing tracheas, and more.
REASONS VIMAGO™ IMAGING IS RECOMMENDED:
- Skull/ Sinuses
- Tumors: identification and assessment
- Metastatic disease
