Eastern Black Rhinoceros, Layla, Undergoes CT Scan at Brookfield Zoo

Michelle Soszynski, a senior veterinary technician for the Chicago Zoological Society, monitors Layla a 7½-year-old eastern black rhinoceros, as she receives a CT scan inside Brookfield Zoo’s Pachyderm House. The images from the scan provided diagnostic results that helped determine the best course of action in treating an infection in Layla’s nasal passageway. NeuroLogica, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, generously donated the use of its BodyTom®, the world’s first battery-powered, portable, 32-slice CT scanner, for the procedure. In addition, technicians from NeuroLogica and a physicist from Sound Technologies donated their services to set up and operate the machine. Following the CT scan, veterinarians performed surgery to remove infected tissue. Photo credit - Jim Schulz/Chicago Zoological Society.
