Dedicated veterinary MRI

Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging - the only MRI specialist dedicated to the veterinary profession

Anon 3 sagittal cat spine T2Dogs, cats, and especially horses are not human beings - yet most MRI suppliers expect veterinarians to adapt to a scanner designed for people.  Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging is different. Our scanners are made just for your patients, our software is designed to be used by veterinary technical staff, and our customer support team has a post-graduate level education.

Founded in 2001 by MRI scientists with decades of MRI system design experience, Hallmarq first took on the challenge of scanning the standing horse to avoid the risk and inconvenience of general anesthesia.  Today the Hallmarq EQ2 standing equine scanner is by far the most popular MRI scanner for horses, used by leading equine specialist vets worldwide.  The ready access and affordability of MRI has revolutionised the diagnosis of equine lameness.

More recently the company has applied its expertise to companion animals, with a product designed to be located, operated, and financed by a vet clinic rather than a human hospital. With veterinary-specific RF coils, no need for a special metal-screened room and with continuous on-line connection for support, assistance and even image interpretation if needed, the Hallmarq product is a big step forward from the alternative of either new or reconditioned human hospital scanners.

Equine MRI

MRI was first used for horses in 1997, but it was not until 2003, with the invention of standing MRI by Hallmarq, that the technique became popular among equine veterinarians and generally accessible to horse owners.

Today safe, early and accurate lameness diagnosis is possible using MRI, and the treatment can now be based on a clear diagnosis.  Both standing and high field MRI have proven diagnostic rates of 90% or better.

 

With standing MRI the horse is sedated and stands comfortably with one leg inside the scanner.  In contrast, horses must always be anesthetised to be scanned using any other non-Hallmarq equine MRI option.
