Project Description

Visiting Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Scanning

Diagnostic imaging specialists and experienced surgeons on your doorstep

We welcome our visiting MRI scanner on a regular basis. Having this facility available, means worried owners no longer need to travel long distances with an ill pet to benefit from this advanced service.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) enables us to look at detailed images of the body by the using an extremely powerful electromagnet and has the advantage of being extremely safe.

These features make it ideal for imaging the brain, spine and the skull.

MRI has many advantages over x-rays and ultrasound including the incredible detail it provides.

Imaging referrals are available as part of our surgical referral service or referral imaging only with reporting by Nicolette Hayward BVM&S DVR DipECVDI MRCVS & European Veterinary Diagnostic Specialist.
