MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (or MRI) can tell our specialists a lot. This versatile imaging procedure is performed on pets under anesthesia, so we often reserve it for situations where other imaging has not provided enough information. We also use MRI to evaluate the brain, as it offers increased sensitivity (e.g. in detecting causes of seizures).

MRI results are interpreted by a board-certified veterinary radiologist and used by Avets' veterinary specialists, or can be ordered by your primary care veterinarian. Avets' veterinary-specific open MRI, from Animal Imaging Partners located in the Pittsburgh area, allows unprecedented patient access.
