Advantages of CT over traditional x-ray

Advantages of CT over traditional x-ray

Posted - 18-04-2019

The scanner allows a high speed 3D image to be generated and these extremely detailed images allow for more detailed interpretation when compared to a traditional 2D image where problems in visualising a 3D object in a 2D image are common. A CT scan provides much more detail than a traditional x-ray. This detail allows for better diagnosis and treatment planning by our vets.
