Digital radiographs are used to evaluate internal bony and soft tissue structures. These digital images can be sent to your regular veterinarian for incusion in your pet's file.
We are pleased to be able to offer computed tomography (CT) services at Colorado Veterinary Specialists. A CT scan is a computer reconstruction of a series of radiographs taken of a body structure. The reconstruction allows multi-dimensional viewing of the structure scanned for diagnostic purposes. CT scans are performed for a variety of reasons including the diagnosis of conditions such as brain tumors, intervertebral disc disease and evaluation of musculoskeletal structures for diagnosis of joint disease. CT scans are commonly performed to determine tumor margins prior to surgery and to look for evidence of tumor metastasis.
CT scans can be performed on an outpatient service with a referral from your regular veterinarian. Patients are briefly placed under general anesthesia or heavy sedation during the CT scan and go home the same day. Our CT scans are read by a board certified veterinary radiologist to provide the most accurate evaluation possible.
Ultrasound biopsies and guided needle aspirations available.
Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body. It is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure. Ultrasound biopsies and needle guided aspirations are also available to obtain samples from internal structures without surgery.

Absolutely amazing! Dr. Imhoff performed knee surgery on my little chihuahua Caesar. I was very nervous about it but he and the office regularly called me through out the day to give me status updates. It really helped to calm my nerves. Dr. Imhoff then checked Caesar weekly for the next six weeks to check his healing progress. He explained everything to me and was very friendly and knowledgeable. One night, midway through Caesar's healing he had wiggled out of his e-collar and ripped his bandages off. I panicked and brought him into the ER next door. The staff and doctor on duty were so incredibly calming and friendly, even though I was freaking out. After checking him over the doctor re-bandaged Caesar and didn't even charge us the ER fee. Absolutely amazing service and friendly staff. I never felt like they were trying to nickel and dime me, unlike other places. I will always recommend them! Thank you Dr. Imhoff for doing an amazing job on Mr. Caesar!
