Savannah Monitor Coelom Perfused with BriteVu CT Contrast Medium

Preliminary (low resolution) image of a high radiodensity contrast perfused savannah monitor with metabolic bone disease and osteomyeltitis (bone infection). Two of the most interesting findings are the ‘cross hatch’ pattern of the spinal vasculature and the kidneys.  The head is to the left and tail to the right.  The kidneys are at the far right of the image.  The monitor was CT scanned at 0.6 mm.
