Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

In 2004, The Cornell University Hospital for Animals at the College of Veterinary Medicine became home for the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) unit which was purchased and installed with grant money from the Maurice and Corinne Greenberg Foundation.

The MRI unit specializes in better detailing soft tissue images for diagnosing musculo-skeletal disorders and diseases of the brain. It is specifically designed for companion animals (dogs, cats, and other small pets) who can be anesthetized and remain completely still for approximately 30-45 minutes during the time of the MR scans. Further information can be obtained in the Cornell Chronical (December 2, 2004).
