Working in partnership with Cambridge University and the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital, the University of Cambridge Veterinary School Trust (Camvet) had pledged to raise £300,000 towards the cost of a brand new 3T MRI machine.
The MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging Machine) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to generate images of the organs in the body. It is a vital tool for the Hospital's clinical team to help accurately and quickly diagnose our animal patients.
The new machine will be a 3T MRI which has a stronger magnet and makes better images of organs and soft tissue than other types of MRI do. It is used to make images of the brain, the spine, the soft tissue of joints, and the inside of bones and blood vessels.
The cost of the entire project, including the refurbishment of existing hospital space to make it safe to house the new machine, will be in the region of £1.6m. Both the University of Cambridge and the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital will be making significant contributions to reach this total.
With your help we know that we can reach our target of £300,000. Giving couldn't be easier, simply click on the donate button above and if you are a UK tax payer we can claim the Gift Aid on your donation too.
