Veterinary specialist invests £1.5m in CT and MRI systems

Davies Veterinary Specialists has invested £1.5 million in state-of-the-art veterinary diagnostic imaging systems.

Based in Hertfordshire, the Linnaeus-run small animal veterinary referral hospital has taken delivery of new MRI and CT systems as a part of its programme of continual growth and development, which includes increasing the hospital footprint and establishing new veterinary teams.

A Siemens Magnetom Sempra diagnostic imaging system and a Siemens Somatom go.All CT scanner greatly increase the hospital’s diagnostic capabilities. In addition, the footprint has been extended to accommodate the new equipment, which is adjacent to a viewing room providing multiple screens for efficient diagnostic viewing and report generation.

“We have a long history of advanced imaging here,” said clinical director Ronan Doyle. “But this investment has really brought us to the forefront of where imaging is at and allows us to provide gold standard care for all of our patients. We can obtain incredible images of what is going on inside the patient to help us rapidly and effectively diagnose what the underlying problem is. Or, if we are planning a surgery or an intervention, we can figure out exactly where we need to go and how we go about it to provide the best possible outcome.”
