After an initial appraisal by one of our referral vets all of our MRIs are routinely interpreted by Dr Mike Targett, MA VetMB PhD DipECVN MRCVS or our visiting neurology specialist Kate Stalin BA VetMB DipECVN MRCVS, and an independent official report is made.
Areas of referral
Our experienced referral veterinarian can handle referral cases in the following areas:
- Brain diseases (tumours, cranial nerve disorders, meningitis) and investigation of seizures.
- Spinal disease (Intervertebral disc degeneration, Ischaemic myelopathy (aka: Fibrocartilaginous embolism, neoplasia)
- Middle/Inner ear disease
- Some musculoskeletal problems
- Congenital conditions such as syringohydromyelia in Cavalier King Charles spaniels and hydrocephalus in small breed dogs.
From June 2017, we will have regular weekly visits every Monday from a mobile MRI scanner, fully equipped for magnetic resonance imaging on animals.
We are pleased to announce that we will soon be installing a permanent 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner in April 2018. This will greatly benefit our increasing number of neurology cases.
