8 Year female Greyhound CT footage

Posted on 11-07-2019 | Posted by Lewis Newell

An 8 year old female neutered greyhound presented with 3/10 lameness of her left hind leg with minimal response to analgesia. Haematology and biochemistry were unremarkable and pain was identified on examination at the level of the distal femur. Radiographs were performed and were unremarkable. There was no evidence of any pathology within the stifle or femur. A CT scan was performed immediately after the radiographs given the suspicion for neoplasia and identified a focal aggressive lytic lesion centered on the left distal femoral metaphysis. Neoplasia was the primary differential including primary osseous neoplasm such as osteosarcoma.

The possibility of a round cell neoplasm such as plasmacytoma or histiocytic sarcoma was considered less likely. This pathology was not apparent on radiographs taken at the time of CT and therefore the CT greatly aided early diagnosis and prognostic planning with the owner.

"Upgrading our diagnostic suit with another ultrasound machine from MIUS was sheer pleasure in all respects. The equipment is excellent and the support could not be better. MIUS provides an amazing balance of quality and price. On top of that, their philosophy of high end recycling is very timely."

"Having already purchased an ultrasound machine from MIUS we purchased a CT scanner from MIUS in 2018. MIUS provided accurate and appropriate advice on which machine would best suit our needs and have been delighted with both the scanner and service we have received. From the first concept of installing a CT scanner Fraser and his team liaised with us to ensure we had the correct building requirements and to produce a timeline so that installation occurred seamlessly. The training provided by Ann and Denise was fantastic and left us with an excellent knowledge of how to use our machine and great follow up support when needed for complex cases / protocol changes. I would recommend MIUS to anyone!"

"Fraser from MIUS provided us with a professional and honest appraisal of our practice needs when it comes to ultrasound imaging . There was no hard sell and the follow up and training were excellent. The machine we went for has exceeded expectations and is an invaluable tool in our diagnostics. If your interested in updating your system or just getting started I would highly recommend having a chat ."

"Having purchased our CT Pod from MIUS last year I could not be happier with the service. The CT scanner is in excellent condition, the sales team were very attentive and made sure everything ran smoothly for the delivery date, and the after sales service care is excellent. Training was of a very high standard, and they were always there at the end of the phone if we had any queries after the training day. The ‘pod’ idea is working really well for us and was so much more cost effective than having to build an extension. I would recommend MIUS to anyone looking for advanced imaging for their practice."

"I thought I would drop you a quick email to let you know how happy I am with your service. Starting with Fraser who stayed in contact throughout the process updating me, he has received several phone calls from me asking questions and has always been contactable. Your team at head office for our training day could not be more helpful and thorough, I thought the hands on training let me understand a lot more about the service we now offer. Finally to your fitting team “utterly exceptional”, they were very professional and caused little to no disruption to the rest of the practice. I could not have wished for it to go any better you have a VERY happy customer."

"This is our first dealing with MIUS. I took Fraser's advice and bought the Siui 900 as a spare equine repro scanner at a budget price but am so happy with its image quality and ease of use that I am using it now on a daily basis. Great battery life, lightweight and good image size. Very impressed with the after sales service from Fraser and the team. Will definitely deal with MIUS again."

"Dear Fraser, Thank you for calling in today and giving your usual excellent after sales service. My thoughts on the Siui Apogee 2100V Easy and Quick set up. Lovely large clear screen and the ability to use more of it that was previously possible with the full screen view. I like the ease and quickness of in-putting patient details and intuitiveness of key board for simplicity of use. It is very quick and easy to save images to the machine or to printer or USB both, still and cine images. Very happy customer especially as this unit also represents very good value for money compared with other units on the market."
