Braun, U; Irmer, M; Augsburger, H; Müller, U; Jud, R; Ohlerth, S (2011). Computed tomography of the abdomen in Saanen goats: II. liver, spleen, abomasum, and intestine. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 153(7):314-320.

Abstract

This study describes the results of computed tomography (CT) of the liver, spleen, abomasum, small intestine and large intestine in 30 healthy Saanen goats. CT examination and anatomical slice preparation postmortem were performed as described in the first communication. After subjective evaluation of the CT images, various variables including the length/size, volume and density of the liver, spleen and gallbladder, the wall thickness of the abomasum, small intestine and large intestine and the diameter of the intestine were measured. The liver, spleen, abomasum, small intestine and large intestine could be accurately visualised using CT.
