Introduced in 1970s, Computed tomography (CT) was developed initially as a brain scanner, which is later been used for multiple application. The CT is based on a basic concept: A thin cross-section of the head, a tomographic slice, was examined from multiple angles with a pencil-like x-ray beam. The CT has not only been used for human but also for animals. In many cases, CT imaging can provide valuable information that cannot be obtained with ultrasound and radiography. CT uses x-rays and computer processing to create cross sectional (transverse) slices of internal structures. CT images are not only clear but can isolate a specific internal region. Each CT slice is formatted from multiple x-ray exposures captured as the scan completes a 360 degree rotation. It is important for doctors to know the indications for CT imaging so this modality can be incorporated into a case when financially feasible.
Veterinary Computed Tomography Scanner Market: Drivers and Restraints
The veterinary computed tomography scanner market is expected to mark a significant growth in the coming few years due to increasing awareness about injuries to small companion animal and large animal population. Addition to this, growing demand for pet insurance with growing animal health expenditure, and rising number of veterinary practitioners who requires veterinary CT scanners to understand the anatomy of the animals tend to propel the market.
However, high cost of the veterinary CT scanners is one of the major factor which is hampering the growth of this market.
