We are delighted to be the first private veterinary practice in Ireland to offer CT scanning. We have the only veterinary 16 slice CT scanner in Ireland.
CT (computed tomography, also known as CAT scan) is a diagnostic tool that has long been essential in human medicine and will revolutionise veterinary medicine.
We are accepting referrals from other vets, either as outpatients or inpatients.
What is CT scanning?
CT scanning is fast, painless, non invasive and accurate.
A CT (Computed Tomography) scan is a high speed diagnostic tool that uses a 360-degree x-ray beam to create detailed 2D or 3D images of the body.
CT uses x-rays to create a cross-sectional image. This is achieved by imaging thin slices of the patient, similar to slicing a loaf of bread. This form of imaging, tomography provides the radiologist much more information about the patient than conventional x-ray.
Why refer to Sunbeam for an outpatient CT scan?
We are happy to see referrals on an outpatient basis. This means that you retain complete control of the case. The animal will be admitted and discharged by a veterinary nurse and the specialist CT report will be sent directly to you. In essence you can use the CT as an extension of your own practice.
In patient referrals
Our vets have certificates in medicine, surgery, cardiology and chronic pain management. We also accept dental referrals.
