Veterinary institutions started installing magnetic resonance (MR) scanners in the 1990s. Since then, clinical use of MR has grown in parallel with the development of specialized veterinary medicine, particularly in the field of neurology, which has been transformed by MR. Similarly, the introduction of MR for horses has revolutionized diagnosis of foot lameness. As MR imaging technology develops and MR scanners become more readily available to the veterinary profession, there is a growing need for more teaching and research about use of this remarkable modality.
