A Glasgow-based vet group is hosting a free CPD session to mark the launch of an outpatient CT scanning service.

The Pets’n’Vets Family will host the service once a month at its Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital, in the south of the city, starting on 14 November.

To coincide with the launch, the practice is hosting a CPD session with Burgess Diagnostics on 12 December, where radiographers will share the opportunities an outpatient CT scanning service can offer.

Immediate benefit

Pets’n’Vets partner Ross Allan said: “CT scans are of immediate benefit in expanding the scope and range of services that practices can offer quickly, accurately and non-invasively – in the process, opening the window to diseases previously difficult to diagnose and treat.

“The CT scanner will be visiting the Roundhouse Hospital monthly throughout 2017, enabling us to provide access to CT scanning to local practitioners on an outpatient basis. We are keen to make local vets aware of how this service has been of benefit to our patients and how their patients can access CT on an ‘outpatient’ basis.”
