Americans spend over $40 billion a year on their pets, with veterinary care being one of the largest expenditures. The quality of veterinary care has greatly increased in the past 10 years and diagnostic imaging has become an integral part of some veterinary practices. This program looks at the use of nuclear medicine and diagnostic imaging in veterinary facilities. Program Objectives By the end of this program, the viewer should be able to: 1. Discuss the indications for routine diagnostic imaging in a veterinary facility. 2. Discuss the indications for nuclear medicine imaging in a veterinary facility. 3. Describe the special considerations that are necessary when imaging animals. Target Audience Course objectives for this program specifically target nuclear medicine and positron emission tomography (PET) technologists. NOTE: While not limited to this audience group, the technical content is most effective when applied to people with this training. Regardless of your imaging specialty, you may apply for continuing education credit. Refer to the Continuing Education Credit page for additional information.

  5. 5. © 2008 General Electric Company. All rights reserved. 5 of 11 GE Healthcare NM/PET: Veterinary Nuclear Medicine – "The Other Pet Scanning" REV 0 Program Supplement and Test Introduction Have you ever considered a career in veterinary (vet) imaging? This program offers a glimpse into how it is to work in a veterinary diagnostic imaging department. The amount of money spent on pets has increased dramatically in recent years, with Americans spending a great deal on food, supplies, medicines, and services. A recent report by the cable news network (CNN) found that an increasing percentage of this money was spent on services that used to be exclusively for people. New pet services include massage therapy, spa treatments, couture clothing, and gourmet food. A large amount of money is also spent on veterinary care, and the quality of this care has dramatically increased in recent years. Now it is not unusual to find high-end diagnostic imaging equipment in vet offices and hospitals. Additionally, many other services that were unheard of a few years ago, including cosmetic procedures and acupuncture, are now found in veterinary offices. This program observes a typical day in the diagnostic imaging facility at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Teaching Veterinary Hospital. NOTE: Due to the nature of this program, it is necessary for you to watch the video in order to pass the assessment. Indications for Veterinary Imaging Small Animals Dogs and Cats • Heart disease. • Oncology: – Metastatic spread of disease. • Foreign object ingestion. • Bone scans for osteosarcoma in dogs. • Thyroid scans for hyperthyroidism or thyroid cancer in cats. • Magnetic resonance (MR) for brain tumors or disc herniation. • Positron emission tomography for dogs with nasal tumors: – Radiation therapy planning. Special Species • Adrenal tumors in ferrets. • Ovarian cysts in guinea pigs.
