Installation of our new CT scanner is now complete.

Installation of our new CT scanner is now complete and we scanning commenced last week.  We are now able to offer CT scans to cats and dogs on a daily basis helping us to achieve a diagnosis in more complex cases.  The scans performed at Beechwood Veterinary Hospital by Dr Mark Straw are digitally sent to Dr Fraser McConnell based at Liverpool University. Dr McConnell is one of the countries most prominent veterinary advanced imaging specialists and produces reports detailing all abnormalities found on the scans.

Beechwood are proud to be the first Veterinary Hospital to install a permanent CT scanner in the Doncaster area and offer their scanning services to all neighbouring practices. If you are a client at another practice and your Vet recommends a CT scan your pet can be referred to Beechwood for a scan and the report sent back to your own Vet for them to continue treatment.  The process is simple and a referral form for your own Vet to complete can be found on http://www.beechwoodvet.co.uk/ct_mri_scanning/
