Info about Center The Veterinary MRI and RT Center of New Jersey was the first veterinary only, free- standing cross- sectional imaging and radiation treatment center in the world. In fact, during the early years of operation, the center was utilized by institutions such as Tufts University, The Animal Medical Center and the University of Pennsylvania for clients in the New York Metro area. The vision of a handful of veterinary specialists and general practitioners, the center officially opened its' doors to the public in November of 2002. As there was no veterinary model for such a center, it took two years to organize, develop and construct a center that was adaptable to animals. To this day, it has remained true to its' mission: to offer advanced imaging capability to the general practitioner and specialist alike and act as an extension of the diagnostic armamentarium to improve the lives of the companion animal patient. Not only has the center treated thousands of patients, it has become a vital educational resource for veterinarians in the application of cross- sectional imaging and advanced cancer treatment. The center pioneered treatment protocols for the application of radiation treatment and cross- sectional imaging. Thanks to these protocols, not only do 60% of the radiation treatment cases not require anesthesia, but the majority of CT scans are performed in as little as 30 minutes. MRI scans are performed in 60 minutes. This has added the dimension of convenience for our modern day, busy lifestyles..
