Otitis in pets: use of tomography for diagnosis

otitis in pets

Acute otitis in pets, especially dogs and cats, is a challenging condition that requires an accurate diagnosis for effective treatment. As technology advances, a valuable tool is emerging in the veterinary diagnostic arsenal: tomography. Let’s explore how this technique can be a crucial ally in diagnosing otitis media in our beloved furry companions.


The challenge of otitis in pets

Acute otitis, inflammation in the middle region of the ear, can be difficult to diagnose, often masquerading as other ear problems.

But clinical assessment alone may not be sufficient to identify the extent of the problem, justifying the search for more advanced imaging methods.


The revolution of tomography in veterinary diagnosis

Tomography, an imaging technique that uses X-rays to create detailed images of layers of the body, has proven to be a valuable tool in diagnosing ear conditions in animals.

In the case of acute otitis, it allows a precise three-dimensional view of the internal anatomy of the ear, revealing inflammation, fluid accumulation and possible injuries.


Advantages of the exam

Anatomical precision: Tomography offers a detailed view of the internal structures of the ear, enabling a more accurate assessment of the extent of the problem, for example.

Identification of hidden injuries: Lesions that may go unnoticed in conventional exams can be identified and accurately evaluated by tomography.

Treatment planning: With more detailed information, veterinarians can plan more effective treatment strategies tailored to each patient’s specific needs.
