Veterinary Radiology at Penn Vet combines trailblazing research, outstanding education and clinical excellence in a leading academic health sciences institution.
Our clinicians, all board-certified in Radiology, provide the clinical imaging and radiation therapy needed for patients of Ryan Veterinary Hospital for small companion animals in the greater Philadelphia region.
At Ryan Veterinary Hospital, the diagnostic imaging capabilities include digital radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, 16-slice helical computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Penn Vet’s Ryan Veterinary Hospital, one of the busiest veterinary teaching hospitals in the country, sees more than 31,000 small-animal patient visits a year. The Radiology Section benefits directly from this caseload, with 16,000 small-animal imaging studies and 6,500 large-animal imaging studies per year. Because Ryan is a tertiary referral facility, hospital clients expect the best possible veterinary care for their pets.
The MRI Referral Center opened in 2007 and now receives cases referred by practicing veterinarians. A fully-staffed MRI facility, the Rosenthal Imaging and Treatment Center (RITC), provides comprehensive referral service in a friendly and efficient manner for our clients and their companion animals.
Outpatient imaging is provided for Ultrasound, Computed Tomography, and MRI. These imaging services are provided with a referral from a veterinarian and a scheduled appointment. Please expect a half-day visit for that appointment.
