Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging has signed a contract with the Las Vegas Veterinary Specialty Center (LVVSC) for installation of a PetVet 1.5T veterinary magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine.
“The entire PetVet system was designed for veterinary use,” said Dana Gietzen from LVVSC. “As a result, the PetVet offers advanced image capability and allows us to make more accurate diagnoses. These are the best MRI images I have ever seen with a 1.5 tesla magnet. I contribute this to the veterinary-specific coils.”
PetVet is the first veterinary MRI system with coils specifically designed for a dog’s anatomy, improving image quality and allowing vets to investigate challenging anatomical areas more easily.
Dean Penniman, LVVSC hospital administrator, added: “The PetVet MRI system will allow us to scan the patient in our building, making the entire process more hands-on and efficient.
“Plus, because the PetVet has an on-board radio frequency (RF) shield we don’t need to build an RF-shielded room, which is a large capital investment.”
