Standing MRI

  • NO GENERAL ANESTHESIA REQUIRED!!
  • State of the art technology for excellent diagnostic quality images.
  • Outpatient procedure done on the standing, sedated horse.
  • Imaging available for the foot, fetlock, metacarpus/metatarsus, carpus and hock.
  • Not a "scanning" modality, so a thorough lameness work-up with precise localization (from diagnostic "nerve blocks") required prior to referral.
  • Imaging of the contralateral limb (when possible) done as a courtesy, no additional charge.
  • All images read by a board certified radiologist; final reports generally available within 48 hours.
