UPEI AVC receives MRI scanner


The University of Prince Edward Island’s Atlantic Veterinary College has received a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner. The multimillion-dollar scanner is part of a multi-phased campaign to expand the Veterinary Teaching Hospital’s footprint and create a Diagnostic Imaging Centre with cutting edge technology. The machine will make it possible for AVC to scan people and animals alike in-house, including larger animals such as horses and cows. UPEI plans to make the MRI available for patients by spring.
