MRIs for Pets in South Florida
Serious neurological conditions such as intervertebral disk disease, brain tumors, strokes, meningitis and encephalitis require magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. When it comes to imaging the soft tissues of the body, including the nervous system, MRI is considered the best tool available. CT scans and plain radiographs are frequently inadequate at diagnosing such problems. In fact, we often end up having to perform an MRI after CT scans misdiagnosed the pet’s problem.
