MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
A powerful magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer are used in MRI to create detailed images of organs, soft tissues, and other internal body structures. The images can then be viewed on a computer monitor or printed to provide an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for your pets' medical issues.
Hallmarq Small Animal MRI
Our 1.5T High Field Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging, Inc. MRI unit is ready to provide our animal patients with cutting-edge diagnostic capabilities.
This new MRI is the first 2nd generation small animal MRI system to be installed in the Vancouver area and is twice as fast as our previous in-house unit.
The technology, designed specifically for the veterinary market, will provide diagnostic capability at speeds and accuracy comparable to MRIs used in human medicine.
Because our MRI machine is veterinary-specific and not a human machine retrofitted for dogs and cats, it provides a 20% better signal. This allows for improved image quality and clearer imaging of difficult-to-reach areas on many pets.
Neurology & Neurosurgery
Our board-certified veterinary neurologist frequently employs our cutting-edge MRI scanner for the diagnosis and treatment of animal brain, spinal cord, muscle, and nerve disorders.
