Cornell University installs first permanent open-magnet MRI for animals
MRI is a standard diagnostic procedure in men. If an MRI is indicated, most dogs and cats have to be referred to a diagnostic centre, often run by colleagues from human medicine. Now a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, the first permanent open-magnet MRI in North America specifically designed for companion animals, is installed at the Cornell Hospital for Animals and will get a better view of abnormalities in soft tissue.

`This machine is her 24/7 just for the animals,` says Dr. Peter Scrivani, a board-certified radiologist at the hospital. `This is an open MRI, not a closed tunnel that the patient disappears into. The open MRI seems to make the pet owners more comfortable.`

Animals are anaesthetized so they stay motionless during the about 30 to 45-minute series of scans. Tubes for air and anesthetic gas run through one wall of the enclosure, and an anesthesiologist monitors the flow of gases in and out of the animal`s lungs.

A grant from the Maurice and Corinne Greenberg Foundation funded the acquisition. The Italian company Esaote SpA built the Vet-MR system.
