Equine Magnetic Resonance Imaging
MRI is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radiofrequency energy to make an image of structures in the patient.
MRI is suitable for specific investigation of musculoskeletal injury, including bone oedema, ligamentous and tendon injury, and in some facilities, diseases of the equine head. Both standing low field MRI units (0.27T) and high field units (1.5T) may be available, depending on your location. We can help referring vets to find a suitable MRI location for studies, if needed.
DICOM image files from the MRI studies are interpreted by our specialist radiologists. Imaging Vets offer a personalized service, provided for our veterinary clinics in a relationship of mutual trust, to achieve the best results for each horse.
