Diagnostic imaging includes radiographs (x-rays), ultrasound, CT scans, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), fluoroscopy, and other specialized tests. Our diagnostic imaging team conducts many studies to evaluate different techniques to help improve diagnosis and treatment options.
clinical trial for dog with brain tumors
The Small Animal Neurology Service and Diagnostic Imaging Service are enrolling canine patients with brain tumors in a study evaluating the use of PET-MRI for identifying and diagnosing cancers in dogs.
This study will provide better understanding of this imaging tool in dogs with brain tumors. Findings from this study may provide veterinary medicine the ability to tell the difference between certain brain tumor types and help determine how aggressive tumors are.
