Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a state-of-the-art imaging method that allows a very accurate diagnosis of various conditions in a non-invasive manner. It is an ideal method for visualising not only structural but also functional changes, particularly in soft tissues. Usually it is used to assess diseases of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves (discopathies, encephalitis, spinal cord, nerves, strokes), but also to evaluate abdominal and mediastinal organs and in numerous conditions of the muscles, ligaments and tendons (cruciate and collateral ligament ruptures). It is used in cases where other methods offer limited sensitivity and more accurate diagnosis is required.
This procedure involves no harmful radiation.
At our clinic, we use a high-field 1.5 Tesla apparatus, which is one of the few apparatuses of this level of sophistication in Poland that can be used on animals.
Thanks to our experienced radiological-technical and anaesthetic team, we are able to offer high-quality procedures.
If necessary, such procedures are often performed on an urgent basis with almost immediate therapeutic decisions (especially in the case of patients requiring neurosurgical procedures). If necessary, the procedure can be combined with a CT scan.
If you have any questions about the MRI procedure, selection criteria or would like to enquire about a possible appointment, please feel free to contact us.
