Black Rhinoceros at Brookfield Zoo Undergoes Second CT Scan Following a Lifesaving Surgery

Layla, a 7½-year-old eastern black rhinoceros at Brookfield Zoo underwent a second CT scan (computed tomography), a week after she received a lifesaving surgery performed by a dedicated team of Chicago Zoological Society veterinarians and veterinary specialists. The scan was done on a BodyTom®, the world’s first battery-powered portable CT. NeuroLogica, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, once again generously donated the use of the machine, which was operated by a physicist from Sound Technologies.
