Diagnostic imaging of intra-abdominal cyst in heifer using the computed tomography.

Otomaru K, Fujikawa T, Saito Y, Ando T, Obi T, Miura N, Kubota C - J. Vet. Med. Sci. (2015)

Bottom Line: A 10-month-old Japanese black heifer was diagnosed as having an intra-abdominal cyst using computed tomography (CT).Through a posterior ventral midline incision, the cyst was removed, and the heifer completely recovered after the surgery.CT scans enabled detection of the intra-abdominal cyst and measurements of the diameter of the cyst before the surgery.

Sagittal (a) and dorsal-plane (b) multiplanar recontruction CT images without contrastin heifer with abdominal cyst. Arrows show the presence of intra-abdominal cyst. The CTvalues in the lesion were 28–31 H.U. Arrowheads show the presence of urinarybladder.

Mentions: CT imaging of the intra-abdomen was performed under deep sedation with 2% xylazine (xylazine2%, Fujita, Tokyo, Japan) injection. Image acquisition was obtained using a multi-slicehelical CT scanner (Aquilion, Toshiba, Otawara, Japan). The gantry aperture in CT was 90 cm.CT imaging was acquired at 2 mm collimation, a gantry rotation speed of 0.5 sec, 120 kV and500 mAs. 100 ml of iopamidol (oypalomin, Konica Minolta, Tokyo, Japan), with370 mg/ml of iodine content, was infused into the urinary bladder usingurethral catheter for the cystography. Pre-contrast CT images showed that round mass size was22.9 × 21.9 cm, Hounsfield units of the cyst was 29.5 (five regions of interest aboveaverage), and the cyst was not attaching to the umbilicus (Fig. 1a and 1bFig. 1.
