CT case studies

Advanced imaging often avoids the need for more invasive investigation. In our experience this has definitely been the case. The patients below have all been seen by our first opinion team and illustrate just how CT can make all the difference. All of our studies are interpreted by VetCT Consultants in Telemedicine and come with a detailed report including suggested diagnosis and/ or recommendations for each case.
