Portable Cone Beam CT Scans

Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Tinton Falls now offeres something new in advanced veterinary imaging -- Portable Cone Beam CT Scans.

CT stands for Computed Tomography. This type of imaging displays x-ray images of your pet in multiple planes, which gives doctors valuable information about the 3-dimensional anatomy to help diagnose your pet’s disease or injury during your office visit and begin treatment right away.

Our new VetCAT CT Scanner is a small, specialized, and portable cone beam CT scanner used primarily by our Dentistry & Oral Surgery and Avian & Exotics departments..
