Standing MRI for your horse available at Equigen in Cochranville, Pa.
- By Staff Writers
COCHRANVILLE, Pa.--Standing MRI means no general anesthesia for your horse!
Why take the risk when EQUIGEN LLC, the practice of Dr. Stacey Kent, is conveniently located in Chester County, Pa., and the only practice in the area to offer standing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for horses?
No general anesthesia is required and horses are seen on an outpatient basis.
The imaging quality is excellent and this technology allows for visualization of structures beneath the hoof wall that we are unable to visualize with radiography and ultrasonography.
In addition to imaging feet, it is possible to image up to the level of the knees and hocks in the standing sedated horse.
In addition to MR imaging, Dr. Kent has a full-service ambulatory practice with an emphasis on equine sports medicine.
Dr. Kent graduated from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 1999 and has enjoyed an exciting career as an equine veterinarian.
Dr. Kent has circumnavigated the globe as the team veterinarian for the Para Dressage team at the 2008 Paralympic Games, the 2010 World Equestrian Games and the 2012 Paralympic Games.
More recently, Dr. Kent has been focused on working through the many challenging and interesting cases that she is presented with and working collaboratively with the referring veterinarians that send in cases for standing MR imaging.
