Pet CT Scans and MRI Services in Miami, FL
CT (Computed Tomography) Scans in pets are exactly the same as in humans. We utilize rotating x-rays around a patient to make cross-sectional images, which is an extremely rapid imaging modality. With CT Scans, we are able to study spines, skulls, identify tumors, etc. This helps our doctors better diagnose your pet and begin treatment. All studies are read by Board Certified Radiologists, usually within a few hours after the procedure is performed.
MRI’s (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) are used to visualize the nervous system. Your pet is placed in our machine, where images of the brain and spinal cord are taken. These images are of extremely high detail and resolution. The use of MRI’s is the golden standard in veterinary medicine, and help identify disc herniations, brain tumors, strokes, as well as many other conditions. All studies are read the same day by Board-Certified Neurologists.
Both CT Scans and MRI’s are non-invasive and non-painful forms of imaging.
