Imaging the cancer patient: When is advanced imaging needed?

Imaging is a crucial step in the staging of veterinary oncology patients.  The results can determine the type of treatment that is most appropriate for the individual patient and in some cases whether treatment is feasible.  Advanced imaging has advantages but this comes at a cost, both financially and in some cases due to the requirement for anaesthesia or contrast agents, an increase in potential adverse effects.  With the increasing availability of advanced imaging, deciding which patients will benefit is something that we all need to consider.
This session will cover the topic based on cases where advanced imaging is critical, those where it is very useful when available and the cases where it adds little.  The  balance between risk and benefit is the determining factor as to how strongly this is recommended.  The type of advanced imaging used will also vary with the site and what we are looking for in the patient.  This presentation will focus on the use of computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
