Computed Tomography (CT) in First Opinion Practice
1 Donald Mackintosh Way, Scrivener Drive
About this course
A seminar on Computed Tomography in First Opinion Practice will be taking place at Ipswich Veterinary Centre on 25 May and 13 July.
Delivered by Radiographer Stephanie Williams, the session will include a live demonstration of the Centre’s state-of-the-art CT scanner and a lecture.
One of the best tools in diagnostic imaging, a CT scan is non-invasive and once the patient is anaesthetised it only takes a few minutes to perform a scan, considerably reducing the amount of time the pet needs to be kept under a general anaesthetic.
Unlike a normal x-ray, which produces a single two-dimensional picture, CT takes lots of x-ray pictures from different angles in rapid succession and can then build a 3D image of either the whole body or a specific area of the body being scanned. This means that a single scan can allow vets to see more clearly what is going on inside the body, providing detailed images of the structures inside the body, including the internal organs, blood vessels and bones, dramatically reducing the need for exploratory surgeries.
Aimed primarily at veterinary nurses, the session runs from 19:00 to 20:30 at a cost of £30.00 (£15.00 for CPD Club members).
