Now Available! On-Site MRI for Companion Animal, Farm Animal and Equine Patients
As of May 2015, the Veterinary Medical Center’s (VMC) campus location now offers on site MRI services! Although we have had access for the past several years to a 3 Tesla magnet for companion animals (through a collaboration with Ohio State’s Wright Center for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging), this new MRI provides state-of-the-art MRI diagnostics at our Columbus location for companion, farm and equine patients.
With a high field (3 Tesla) and large bore (70 cm) magnet, the new MRI unit has capabilities unlike any other in Ohio or surrounding states. It captures high resolution images quickly, resulting in better diagnostics, as well as shorter anesthesia time for patients.
The VMC has a dedicated healthcare team of board-certified veterinary radiologists working in collaboration with other specialists in neurology and neurosurgery, small animal and equine orthopedics and sports medicine, cardiology and interventional medicine, oncology and more.
Our new MRI unit will allow us to offer the most advanced imaging, conduct leading-edge clinical trials and provide the best possible care for your patients –at a great value!
For more information, please contact the specific service (i.e. neurology/neurosurgery, equine, etc.) at the VMC.
