Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive the radiology results?

  • CT reports will be interpreted and finalized by a board-certified radiologist and sent to the referring veterinarian within one business day.

Can HVS perform a same-day outpatient CT scan?

  • If a same-day CT scan is needed, please contact us to check availability. Same-day CT scans are available on a case-by-case basis. If that day is not available, we typically are able to schedule a CT scan within one business day.

How should I prepare my patient for anesthesia?

  • Please send all updated medical records, including recent bloodwork (CBC/chemistry). Bloodwork is valid for three months prior to the anesthetic event. A physical exam will be performed by a doctor at HVS on the morning of the procedure.

When should owners expect to drop off and pick up their pets?

  • Drop-offs are scheduled at 7:30am on the morning of the CT scan. HVS will contact the owners directly to schedule the pet’s pick-up time. Pick-up times are generally in the afternoon the same day as their CT.

What are the benefits of a 128-slice CT scanner?

  • A higher-slice CT scanner produces faster scan times, which results in reduced sedation and anesthesia times for your patient. It also provides higher quality images.

What conditions do you commonly scan for?

  • Orthopedic disease- thoracic or pelvic limb lameness
  • Chronic ear infections
  • Abdominal and/or thoracic masses
  • Abdominal and/or thoracic metastatic screening
  • Vascular anomalies (such as EHPSS)
