Abstract

The objective of this request is to equip the diagnostic imaging center of the UNESP School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences at Botucatu with a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner for large and small animals, thereby providing high quality diagnostic support to the research projects developed by the professors, graduate students, and young investigators at our institution and at other research institutes that use our diagnostic imaging facilities for the development of their studies. The progress made in diagnostic imaging is indisputable and MRI is currently the most modern diagnostic instrument, the speed of its development having surpassed that of any other imaging technique. Its intrinsic safety, together with its capacity for multiplanar imaging and contrast adjustment, has secured its place as an important diagnostic tool. It represents a major advance in diagnostic technology in that it facilitates a number of medical diagnoses and provides valuable data for follow-up evaluation of treatments. In addition, MRI creates high-definition images, with the advantage of offering greater safety, because it does not use ionizing radiation. Great advances continue to be achieved, from improved analyses of brain structure, with progressive refinement of spatial resolution, to better images of the breast, heart, abdomen, musculoskeletal system, blood vessels, etc., as well as the characterization of specific types of tissues (fat, blood and water) based on the intensity of the signal, which can differentiate among various pathologies.
