• Outpatient Advanced Imaging (CT) - 1. Practice Details

At Kentdale Referrals, we provide access to CT imaging on an outpatient basis. 

While ‘imaging only’ scans are available, we strongly advise an ‘imaging and report’ service, which includes a comprehensive written report by a Specialist in Diagnostic Imaging (Antech Imaging Services).

CT is especially useful to help investigate and assess the following conditions: 

  • Contrast studies: CT contrast urography, portosystemic shunts
  • ENT: middle ear disease, nasal disease
  • Orthopaedic: elbow dysplasia, bone pathology, neoplasia, osteomyelitis, 3D reconstructions
  • Oncology: staging of neoplasia and as an aid to planning surgical interventions.

Our team are happy to discuss with you which type of scan would be most suitable for your patient and the clinical condition being investigated.

Accessing Kentdale Outpatient Imaging Service

Kentdale outpatient imaging service is available every Thursday. Should you have an imaging request outside of these times please contact our team on 015395 67241 who will be happy to discuss availability with you on a case by case basis.

All patients must be formally referred to us for CT imaging purposes by a referring vet.

As part of our Outpatient Imaging Service our team will co-ordinate the imaging of the patient, following which referring vets will be supplied with access to the images and a full written report from a Diagnostic Imaging Specialist.

During outpatient imaging, the client will have an admission and discharge appointment with an Intern or Registered Veterinary Nurse.

All patients will be examined by a Veterinary Surgeon prior to the sedation or anaesthesia administered to facilitate diagnostic imaging.

Clients will be required to pay in full for the imaging service on the day of the procedure unless a direct claim is approved. Please therefore ensure clients are aware of the costs before making an imaging referral. We accept most debit and credit cards and cash as forms of payment.

Imaging findings will not be discussed with the client directly. Patients/clients will not be given any treatments for the conditions being investigated or treatment recommendations, except in emergency situations where the patient’s health and welfare is at risk, in such cases we will always try to contact you, the referring vet promptly, and keep you informed.

  • There’s never a problem speaking to our lovely receptionists at Kentdale Vets to book an appointment; my little girl would not be with us now without Jan, her surgeon and the brilliant nurses that looked after her.

    Stephen – Nancy’s owner

  • If I could give a higher score, I would! This being our second referral, it has felt like coming home, and to feel that when we arrive with major trauma to our dog is wonderful. Immediately we were in smiley, reassuring, safe arms again, and our crisis rapidly disappeared. The immediate welcome from the reception staff to Kirstie, amazing Joe and even the reassuring and friendly night nursing staff all let us know our precious boy was in very safe hands. Can't speak highly enough - and this is a consistent standard.

    Ani – Floyd’s owner

  • Great communication between myself and the staff was kept updated, and they took great care of my dog! The operation went perfectly, and the scar has healed nicely, considering its place! Gave simple and easy-to-follow after-care steps!

    Kim – Bella’s owner

  • Felt my dog was safe with you, and treatment would be done with his best interests coming first. Follow-up physio with Genie and now Emma were excellent. Friendly staff.

  • I cannot say how amazing Kentdale is; your exceptional service and kindness. Thank you.

    Victoria – Lulu’s owner

  • All the staff go out of their way to be helpful. Nothing is too much trouble, and no question is considered stupid or a waste of time. They treat my dog, Riley, with respect and kindness and me the same. I can’t thank them enough for their help on what has been a rough road for Riley and us.

    Pat – Riley’s owner

  • Excellent doggy care. Nothing too much trouble, and the team all look happy in their jobs. Simon was great with us, and Henry kept us informed and gave clear explanations. Definitely would recommend it.

    Alison – Henry’s owner

  • Full confidence in the skills, equipment and expertise of the whole team. Assured by the staffing levels to respond to unplanned events during procedures and recovery. Across the team, the ability to explain and advise.

    Graham – Winston’s owner

  • The team have been so helpful in looking after Cuin and ourselves after what turned out to be a traumatic experience. We can't thank them enough and would definitely recommend their services.

    Cuin’s Owners

  • Expertise, kindness, empathy, time spent explaining incredibly difficult situations. Efficiency.

    Pet Owner

  • I really felt like me and my dog Mollie were being looked after as soon as we walked through the door. Friendly faces on reception and Jan the consultant was very thorough, friendly and I felt Mollie was in very good hands.

    C. Waterhouse, Pet Owner

  • Very nice waiting area where thought has been given to the layout for having multiple pets in at the same time. Friendly and welcoming staff. Very thorough and professional vets.
