The importance of, and access to MRI equipment for veterinarians is increasing since years. The MRI user group became already a tradition with an annual meeting, this year organised in Ghent. The goal of these annual meetings is to provide a forum for all interested in and working with MRI, where an exchange of experience can take place.
This years meeting is dedicated to: Contrast agents: side effects and developments; Imaging bleeding – haemorrhage – infarcts; Contrast in equine orthopaedics.
The previous meetings held in Switzerland (Bern) and Belgium (Ghent) were successful in bringing together scientists and practitioners from different countries of Europe. During the wet labs cases will be discussed with specialists in the field.
New ideas and concepts can only arise if a forum is provided for all the users of this relatively new diagnostic technique to share and discuss the result of their experiences.
