MRI AND CT SCANNING AT BEECHWOOD

23 April 2012

WE ARE NOW PROUD TO BE ABLE TO OFFER MRI AND CT SCANNING FOR OUR PATIENTS.

Just like Doncaster Royal Infirmary we are now able to offer Hi-Tech imaging here at Beechwood. CT and MRI will enable us to diagnose many conditions that conventional blood tests or X-rays cannot. CT and MRI will also allow us to make a more accurate diagnosis and therefore improve the level of care we can provide to our patients. A CT and an MRI scanner will be visiting Beechwood twice a month and we will be able to scan numerous patients during each visit.  A general anaesthetic or sedative is usually required to keep our patients still during the scan.  A scan is perfectly safe and there are no side effects associated with MRI or CT. This is a huge step forward in Veterinary Medicine and we are excited that we can offer this service to our clients.
