4000th MRI study reached!

On Monday 2nd September 2019 we hit the amazing milestone of our 4000th MRI study!

In 2002 Bell Equine had the world's first standing equine MRI scanner installed and played a central role in the development of this revolutionary aid to lameness diagnosis.

We now have a busy imaging service with several MRIs run on a daily basis for our own and referred clients and have a team of specialist imagers who interpret and report on the images.

Pictured below with his owner is the lovely SKIP who was here for a follow up MRI study (who seemed a lot more interested in cake than the camera!). SKIP has been treated and rehabilitated after his initial MRI diagnosis of a strain to the collateral ligaments of the coffin joint and we're thrilled to report he is now sound!
