Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI as it is commonly know has been part of Newnham Court since August 2000. A mobile unit attends the surgery once a month with a highly skilled radiographer on board to ensure accurate positioning of the patient and that the appropriate scans are taken according to each patients requirements.

MRI combines a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a sophisticated computer to take images in different planes which are not possible using conventional x-rays.

It is a non-invasive technique but it does require an anaesthetic to ensure the patient remains still and is not distressed in anyway by the sounds made by the scanner.

At the end of each session a CD of the patients scans is given to the referring vet and a master copy of the scans is sent to Geoff Skerritt BVSc, MIBiol, DECVN,FRCVS, RCVS and European Specialist in Veterinary Neurology.

Geoff’s team interprets each patients scans and clinical history before sending a written report to each case vet, this usually takes 7-10 days with priority cases being actioned first.
