Veterinary MRI Scanner Now Fully Operational

By | February 2, 2008

I am pleased to announce that our dedicated veterinary MRI scanner is now fully operational!

The doctors and support staff at VERG have undergone extensive training with Esaote imaging experts in order to provide quality, diagnostic images. Dr. Raymond Prata, DACVS, has over 35 years of experience in the fields of surgery and neurosurgery. In addition, we have the backing of board certified radiologists for interpretation of non-routine cases.

As with all of our other services, the extent of your input is tailored to your requirements, with the option of arranging the imaging alone, or having us manage the case from the initial consultation to a full investigation and appropriate medical or surgical therapy.

We have posted a general overview on the theory and application of magnetic resonance imaging. I hope you find this helpful in coordinating a diagnostic plan for your patients. In addition, we are planning a C.E. lecture on applications of MRI in specific cases – further information will follow.

As always, please do not hesitate to call with any questions.
