Grin and bear it: Panda has CT scan for kidney exam
Jiao Qing was examined by experts at Berlin’s Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.
A giant panda whose twin cubs captured international attention has undergone a CT scan after vet discovered one of his kidneys was smaller than the other.
Berlin Zoo said nine-year-old Jiao Qing was examined last week by experts at the city’s Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research after the discrepancy was picked up on an ultrasound.
