ANN ARBOR, Michigan, June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pet Ear Care Center at Cupertino Animal Hospital in Northern

California is now offering on-site CT scans for pets with VetCAT, a small portable CT scanner from Xoran Technologies LLC.

VetCAT CT scans take only 10 seconds and generate high-quality, 3D X-ray images of the anatomy, enabling the

veterinarians at Cupertino Animal Hospital to quickly identify hidden diseases and injuries at the time of their patients' exams. This means more accurate diagnosis and faster treatment for pets. Because the CT scan is displayed on the VetCAT unit itself, pet owners can see their pet's CT scan in real time, allowing them to better understand their pet's problem and make informed decisions about the treatment options presented by their doctor.

By adopting advanced imaging technology for on-site diagnosis, Cupertino Animal Hospital stands out from other veterinary clinics which typically refer pets to offsite locations for CT scans on conventional full-body "donut" style CT scanners. These full-body scanners are so massive, complex, and expensive that they are typically seen only in hospitals and large imaging centers. In eliminating the delay and costs for off-site referral for CT scans, Cupertino Animal Hospital can give pet parents immediate answers about their pet's condition and peace-of-mind in their decisions about treatment options.

"Seeing the joy of passionate veterinarians when discovering 3D images of their patients for the first time is an amazing experience," said David Sarment, DDS, MS, President of Xoran Technologies.  

"We are excited to use cutting-edge technology. With VetCAT, I can finally see X-rays of the head in three dimensions. The diagnosis of ears, sinuses, teeth, and orbit pathology is more precise. It is easy to use and makes me a better doctor," said Dr. Munir Kureshi, DVM, owner of Cupertino Animal Hospital in Cupertino, California.
