Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an imaging process that has established itself as the diagnostic investigation of choice in human medicine. With its superior contrast sensitivity and tissue discrimination, MRI is unparalleled in the imaging of soft tissues. Images can be produced in any plane and without any radiation risk, making MRI now the gold standard method of investigation in 95% of clinical cases.


In conjunction with Burgess Diagnostics, Pearl Referrals are very pleased to be able to offer a cost effective MRI scanning facility to the patients of our colleagues in veterinary practice. Burgess Diagnostics’ dedicated veterinary mobile MRI scanning unit now visits us at Shrewsbury Pet Hospital every four weeks. This means that you can now offer your clients the sort of technology previously reserved only for human medicine.

MRI scans are performed by a qualified radiographer, specialising in veterinary MRI. The referring veterinary surgeon will receive a radiographer’s report on the day of the scan and the scans are forwarded to you. A copy of the scans are also sent to veterinary specialist for their expert interpretation, and a copy of this specialist report is forwarded to you a few days after scanning.

If you have a suitable case just send us a referral form and we’ll do the rest. If you’re unsure or need to discuss a case please call us and ask to speak to Stewart.

MRI costs are from £1150.00 inc VAT.

The wide range of applications of MRI include:

  • Brain
  • Soft tissues
  • Joints
  • Spine
