Computerized veterinary tomography & Nuclear magnetic resonance

The Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital is the first veterinary center in Spain that has a Helicoidal Computed Tomography (CT) device.

The speed of obtaining images is ten times greater than a conventional CT and it obtains volumetric data, being able to make three-dimensional images, dynamic angiographic studies and virtual endoscopy.

Visualization with good resolution of 1 mm tumors.

Quick explorations, such as a large dog’s thorax in just 30 seconds.

In neurology to evaluate herniated discs, spine fractures, cranial tumors, etc.

In traumatology to better assess fractures, diagnosis of elbow dysplasia, pre-surgical plan of bone deformations.

In October 2011 the Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital partnered with other centers in Alicante and Murcia to create the Diagnostic Center for Veterinary Image of Levante. This center has a 1.5 tesla NMR device. The centrol is located in Cuidad Quesada-Rojales, halfway between Alicante and Murcia. The Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital has a transfer service for patients to the center. To request a resonance exam you can call 966860669. This resonance service is included in the discounted services for holders of the HEALTH PLAN of the Marina Baixa Veterinary Hospital.
