Computed Tomography (CT) Scan ON SITE:

Rutland House Referrals are pleased to announce an upgrade to the CT scanning facilities at the hospital. A new GE VCT 64 slice scanner was recently installed replacing the old scanner which served us well for over 10 years!  The advantages of this system include the latest software packages, improved resolution (upgraded from 512 matrix to 1024 and slice thickness down to 0.3mm) but mostly speed – once in position a whole abdomen and thorax study of a 35kg dog can be completed in approximately 5 seconds!

We will continue to offer a full range of CT services to all our referring colleagues, from an out-patient scanning only service to a full referral service with one of our established clinicians.

Area’s for scanning include:

  • Thorax
