MRI

There are a variety of neurological diseases that we can work up, including the use of MRI via a referral with Dr Julian Lunn. MRI with Dr Lunn is useful for;

MRI
  • brain tumours
  • seizures
  • Neck pain
  • Meningitis
  • congenital malformations such as Chiari-like malformations

Did you know that Dr Julian Lunn also attained a Masters degree as part of his residency in veterinary neurology? The current ELISA for Canine Neural Angiostrongyliasis available through IDEXX was developed and validated as part of his study.

Although our Medicine Specialist Dr Geoff Gibbons has now retired from AREC, we encourage our local veterinarians to call and speak to Dr Lunn directly regarding any cases or queries you might have be it liver disease, oncology, neurology, etc – not just the obvious surgery discussions.  Considering Dr Lunn’s experience and qualifications, you may find it useful for a simple collegial discussion to move forward regarding a particular patient.

The AREC referral team looks forward to receiving ongoing referrals from our local veterinary community. And being a Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma 3T scanner it’s the best MRI available to pets in the country!
