THE MEDICAL IMAGING SERVICE
The Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vetirinaire’s imaging service offers a wide range of imaging procedures to companion animals, exotic animals, horses and farm animals:
- Digital x-rays
- Magnetic resonance (MRI)
- Scintigraphy (only offered to companion animals and horses)
- CT Scan
Most procedures are performed with the animal under sedation to reduce stress to the animal and enable quality imaging. Certain specific procedures such as MRI, CT Scan and post-operative x-rays, are performed under general anesthesia to allow for adequate positioning of the animal and superior imaging quality.
