Turn your veterinary clinic or hospital into a “one-stop shop” for diagnostic imaging by adding a refurbished, veterinary MRI scanner to your clinical services.
With permanent magnets and 0.23T open MRI designs, veterinary MRI machines enable precise and high-resolution imaging of the animal’s soft tissues, spinal cord, brain, muscles, and more.
Whether your clinic deals with domestic animals and pets, small animals, large animals, and some farm animals, you’ll find that an MRI scanner dramatically expands your veterinary clinical offerings while facilitating improved diagnostic accuracy, confidence, and care. Because MRI’s don’t use radiation, they are also safer for dogs and cats.
Even the price of MRIs have dropped in recent years, allowing an increasing number of veterinarians to make veterinary MRI a realistic, viable option.
Our large inventory of refurbished, veterinary MRIs also gives you a wide range of options at prices you can work with. Browse different machines below, and to speak with our expert customer support team, call Providian at 877-959-3725.
When evaluating dogs, cats, and other pets and domestic animals, MRI is also useful for brain or spinal abnormalities, cancer staging, soft tissue imaging of muscle, and locating the cause of certain orthopedic diseases.
Investing in an MRI is a major decision for many veterinary clinics and hospitals. However, there are benefits to providing MRIs in-house, and an increasingly number of clinics are utilizing this veterinary diagnostic imaging technology to provide better, more accurate care.
The increased amount of in-house vet MRIs is also due, in part, to significant advances in technology and reduced costs, as well as the fact that today’s MRIs are smaller and they require less space and power.
Nevertheless, it’s still important to align your clinic’s needs with the MRI’s features, technologies, and intended purposes. For instance, some vets prefer to use MRIs with permanent 0.23T, low-field magnets (no superconducting properties nor helium), which helps save on costs while ensuring a professional level of imaging quality for standard diagnostic purposes.
Other features, such as faster reconstruction times (300 images/second) and can be important for pet imaging departments that may want to improve workflow efficiency or better conduct, while higher Tesla strength, such as a 1.5T magnetic field strength or higher, is useful for research purposes.
New, standard MRIs can cost almost a million dollars, and in the past, this was a significant hindrance for standard, private vet clinics and hospitals. To reduce costs, many clinics either share MRI service or outsource the MRI studies when diagnostic evaluations are needed.
Fortunately, this isn’t always the case nowadays, with refurbished, FDA-approved MRI systems offering clinics significantly reduced prices (in the range of 110K to 250K) without sacrificing diagnostic imaging quality. On-site MRI and mobile MRI can also serve as a new revenue opportunity.
Even at reduced prices, it’s important to balance the costs of buying or renting an MRI with its operation and ancillary costs. For instance, anesthesia is often required for many pet imaging applications, and that can be a major cost that vet clinics need to consider.
