At Taconic Veterinary Center, we use a variety of state-of-the-art technology to provide the best possible care for your pet, including computer-assisted tomography, or CT scan. We use the Vimago HD CT scanner—the most advanced CT scanner in veterinary medicine—to help us see below the surface to find out more about your pet’s health and provide treatment that is more effective and specific to their needs.

How We Use Our CT Scan Technology
The high-definition CT scanner enables our team to take detailed images of your dog or cat when a physical exam may be insufficient to confirm a diagnosis. The images produced through a CT scan can help diagnose a variety of conditions that may not be visible through other diagnostic imaging including:
- Complex/articular fractures
- Fragmented medial coronoid process (FMCP)
- Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD)
- Patella luxation
- Spinal lesions
- Metastatic diseases
- Middle-ear disease
- Nasal cavity disease
- Dental disease
Benefits of Pet CT Scan
At Taconic Veterinary Center, we know you care a lot about your pet, and we do too! In addition to high quality images, the Vimago system offers a range of benefits for your pet. This system provides more comprehensive images and uses 60-90% less radiation than a traditional CT scan for pets, making the process safer for our team and your dog or cat. It also has more imaging options such as digital X-rays and fluoroscopy. Call us today and our team will be happy to answer any questions about our CT scan technology and how it can benefit your pet.
