Diagnostic Imaging Including Standing MRI

Veterinary Imaging plays an integral role in the management of a patient’s diagnosis, determining extent of disease, and disease progression through the use of imaging modalities. Available systems include digital radiography, gantry mounted high powered digital radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, nuclear scintigraphy (bone scan), and standing MRI (sMRI).

Our Hallmarq sMRI machine, installed in the Spring of 2015, is the first in New York State and allows our veterinarians to accurately, quickly, and proactively diagnose potential lameness issues without the expense or risk associated with general anesthesia. Images captured by our sMRI, ensure our veterinarians are also able to monitor your patient’s recovery progress in a continuous, non-invasive manner to secure the best outcome possible.

Our imaging technicians consult with Cornell equine medicine, surgery, reproductive and emergency veterinary specialists to provide state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment plans for your patient. Images are stored and shared electronically for a team driven approach to diagnosis, treatment and recovery plan formulation.
