The ANIC BR offers both in-house magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computer tomography (CT) scanning. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a tool that allows for exquisite visualization of soft tissue structures (e.g. the brain and the spinal cord) within the body. CT provides valuable information for surgical planning of some types of spinal disorders. CT also allows for detailed visualization of bone (e.g. the spine), cartilage, lungs, and large soft tissue structures.
The ANIC BR is a state-of-the-art specialty veterinary hospital that performs advanced neurodiagnostic testing, medical neurology and sophisticated neurosurgeries for small animals with neurological disorders. These diagnostics may include blood tests, digital X-rays, MRI, or CT scan. Treatment options are determined after a diagnosis has been made and may include neurosurgery, medical therapy, acupuncture, or physical therapy.
