Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Veterinary Specialty Center MRI

We have a 1.0 Tesla, in-house magnet for MRI. MRI has excellent contrast resolution and is superior for evaluating soft tissue and neurologic structures when compared to radiographs. MRI can be used to visualize the brain, spinal cord, eyes, nasal cavities, inner ears, abdominal organs, or other soft tissues and bone.
