Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
We are the only equine hospital in the North West to offer MRI scanning, which provides high contrast images for bone anatomy and soft tissue structures.
Our Hallmark low field MRI system greatly assists in the diagnosis of foot pain and injury. It is the best tool for diagnosing conditions such as navicular bone degeneration, deep digital flexor tendonitis, collateral ligament desmitis, traumatic arthritis, phalangeal bone bruises, navicular collateral desmitis and fractures.
It is also the gold standard imaging modality for foot penetration investigation, aiding accurate diagnosis of structures involved and assisting in surgical planning and prognosis.
We can see horses on an outpatient basis. The team will remove all metal items such as shoes and the patient will be sedated.
Images are fully assessed and reported by an experienced orthopedic clinician and copies of the images and report are sent to the referring vet for reference.
