Imaging

To effectively treat a patient, an accurate diagnosis is required. 

At VSA Imaging, we use advanced veterinary imaging to ensure the best treatment for patients.  VSA, in partnership with Mercy Radiology, is the first Veterinary Hospital in Auckland to offer high-spec CT imaging. Computed Tomography imaging, also known as "CAT scanning" (Computed Axial Tomography) utilises a rotating X-ray tube to acquire 3D images of an animal’s anatomy to allow veterinarians to better make a decision around a treatment plan following an illness or injury.

The benefits of having onsite imaging means we can work along-side veterinarians to:

  • choose the right imaging modality
  • offer timely scheduling availability
  • reach the correct diagnosis
  • develop an appropriate treatment plan

We are happy to receive patients who come to us directly with their owners, and those who are referred by vets.  The service can also be offered to veterinarians on an out-patient basis.  VSA's new Siemens SOMATOM Emotion 6 CT Scanner is the most popular in the world with excellent quality image retrieval and is available for bookings seven days a week.
