Advanced Scanning Techniques

Advanced imaging techniques are one of the most efficient tools in diagnostics and treatment protocol planning. They provide three dimensional images of the internal body parts and enable a thorough understanding of the cancer. 
Advanced imaging techniques are one of the most efficient tools in diagnostics and treatment protocol planning. They provide three dimensional images of the internal body parts and enable a thorough understanding of the cancer. 

It is possible to do an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), CT (computed tomography), PET (position emission tomography) on pets. These scans are done under anesthesia since the patient has to remain stable. 

In determining the extent of metastasis, diagnosing some types of cancer, in some biopsies and treatment protocols advanced imaging techniques play a major role. Advanced imaging techniques such as MRI, CT and (PET) scan, differently from ultrasound and xray requires collaborating with expert radiologists. In our clinic we aim at perfection in diagnostics and treatment by working with imaging centers which have up to date equipments and experienced radiologists. 

CT scan (Computed Tomography)
In CT, all the bones and internal organs are scanned in high resolution which allows a comprehensive examination. It is particularly efficient in detecting small tumors. CT is a machine that has a round shaped hole in the middle. The ring around the table your cat or dog lies on moves back and forth to get images as small slices of the animal’s body for them to be examined with regard to the suspected pathology. 

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
An MRI scanner applies a very strong magnetic field which excites water molecules inside body tissues into releasing waves and the protons in the water molecules are aligned in the body. MRI scan then builds a picture of where the protons are in the body and a detailed image of the soft tissue structures are revealed. 

PET Scan (Positron Emission Tomography)
In PET scans, the purpose is to measure the cellular metabolic activity in the organs and tissues. For this, a radioactive agent is injected into the body and the agent is followed in order to detect the biochemical changes in the body. In order to determine the anatomic location of the examined tissues this procedure is usually guided by a CT scan.
