Make the Transition from 2D to 3D… Improve Diagnostic Capability and Outcomes
CASE OF THE MONTH: Use of VetCAT IQ for soft tissue diagnosis of orbital tumor
View a feline primary orbital tumor with real-time 3D soft tissue imaging.
Show clients the extent of 3D image intraoperatively to view
the disease and to determine the best treatment.
Conversations to have with clients—
Orbital tumors are best seen on 3D imaging. The extent and type of tumor can typically be seen more clearly.
Dog anatomy can be rotated and cropped in 3D. The floor of the orbit, zygomatic arch and mandibular ascending branch are observed.
Pathology and possible communication with other compartments such as dental apices or the oral cavity. The patient above shows a well-defined cyst in the right maxilla, which is clearly not invading the orbit.
