Computed Tomography (CT) Scan is one of very important diagnostic imaging procedure nowadays used in humans. It is now also used in animals. It uses x-ray images to create a three-dimensional image of the body and its inside parts and organs.

There are so many uses for CT scan and one of the important use for this is for tumor and or cancer detection of the vital organ , imaging of compound fractures, evaluation of a spinal injury and many others.

I was able to observe several scanning appointments during my stay at AI AMC. In this case, the Dachshund is being evaluated for spinal injury which caused its hildlimb paralysis.

Usually after evaluation of cases like this, then you may be able to tell the possible treatment and therapy that may be employed and the probable outcome of the case.
