Approximately 13,000 imaging studies are performed annually. This includes a robust advanced imaging caseload. The 208,000 sq. ft. Bailey Small Animal Teaching Hospital opened in February of 2014. This hospital features two Siemens x-ray rooms with digital plates, one with fluoroscopy. There are two additional direct digital rooms equipped with Canon plates, one for after-hours emergency imaging and one located in our onsite community practice clinic. There are two large ultrasound rooms housing Toshiba Aplio 300 and 500 ultrasound machines with elastography (strain and shear wave) and microvascular imaging capabilities. We also have a separate room for ultrasound patient preparation and ample space dedicated for dictation and teaching.
The 120,000 sq. ft. J.T. Vaughan Large Animal Teaching Hospital houses an x-ray room with DR Canon and Konica CR cassettes. Canon 14 X 17 and 11 X 14 wireless digital plates and portable x-ray equipment are utilized for barn and ambulatory work. We are one of only a few facilities that have the ability to perform cross sectional imaging of the head of standing equine patients with a retrofitted GE VCT 16 slice helical CT. Toshiba Aplio i700 and i600 ultrasound equipment is also available in the large animal hospital. The Ware Imaging Building houses our Magnetom Skyra 3T MRI and state of the art Varian Edge Radiosurgery System that were installed in 2018 as well as a 64 slice GE LightSpeed VCT. These machines are available for both large and small animal patients. Nuclear medicine imaging using Enhanced Technologies digital gamma camera with large rectangular field and Mirage software are utilized for both small and large animal patients. All imaging is digital and connected to a Merge PACs system. The radiology department has a Lutzbot 3D printer and Mimics software for production of 3D models of clinical patients for surgical planning. The CVM has its own IT department which provides support to the small and large teaching hospitals.
