The small animal centre now has a computer tomograph specially developed for small and pets such as dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs etc., which, due to its technology (digital volume tomography), requires 60% - 90% less radiation than conventional 16-line computer tomographs with up to 30x higher resolution. This protects the animals and improves the diagnostics enormously.

This enables us, among other things, to produce 3D images of our patients and at the same time print them out on a 3D printer. This opens up completely new ways, for example in the preparation for surgery:

3D cat head CT dental diagnostics
3D print cat head
3D print cat head for dental diagnostics

Other areas of application for the new computer tomograph at the small animal centre in Durlach are

- dental radiography, e.g. FORL in cats
- but also dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs can be examined very well in detail by means of computer tomography
- diagnosis of tumours and metastases
- setting up of fractures
- preoperative planning of fracture treatment
- imaging of vessels, bile ducts and
gastrointestinal sections with corresponding
contrast media
- placement of probes
- observation of dynamic processes
- heart movement
- swallowing movement (oesophagus imaging)
- integrating implant control during
of the surgical procedure (function similar to a C-arm)
- biopsies
- positioning control before the CT examination
