Animals admitted to the imaging unit essentially come from clinics from the three areas of the CVU (Classes of risk 1 to 3).
Every patient should already be registered with the secretariats of the respective areas beforehand. It is imperative to provide a request form correctly filled to register the animal in the imaging unit. This request form will be provided to the imaging unit secretariat.
Class 3 animals will come to the imaging unit after making an appointment, and preferentially at the end of the day (except emergencies)
Class 4 animals are generally examined in the isolation unit of the clinic of origin (except parvovirus cases for companion animals).
Furthermore, the imaging team sometimes goes to the clinic for non-class 4 patients, especially large animals (e.g. a horse that cannot move).
