A 3T MRI unit on site with small and large animal access is currently being built. We have a large array of software packages for special techniques such as sonographic contrast medium, elastography, osteodensitometry and perfusion imaging.

Our imaging caseload is large and diverse including canine, feline, exotic, equine and farm animals. Interest in particular species and imaging modalities can be tailored to. The imaging service works within a multidisciplinary clinical environment with many other veterinary specialists and generalists. Research is integrated in the Edinburgh Imaging Community (http://www.ed.ac.uk/edinburgh-imaging) and the Roslin Institute, which encourage medical & veterinary radiologists, scientists and engineers to collaborate. There is particular scope to develop further MRI expertise and research. There are many opportunities for veterinary undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.
