Equine MRI of NJ

Equine MRI of NJ was established in 2004 and is located directly across the street from B.W. Furlong & Associates in Oldwick, New Jersey. It is the first standing equine MRI system in a private practice setting in the eastern United States and available on a convenient, outpatient basis.

Why Choose MRI?

Standing MRI is a very useful diagnostic tool for identifying structural and physiologic issues in the distal limb. First, it fills in any blanks left behind following other workups, including radiographs, ultrasounds, and nuclear scintigraphic scans (bone scans). Second, due to the nature of the hoof wall, imaging of the underlying soft tissue structures is extremely limited. MRI offers a “window” into the complex workings of the equine foot.

As exciting and innovative as MRI technology is, it is not meant to replace radiographs, ultrasounds, or bone scans. It is simply another means of diagnostic imaging. A thorough lameness workup will always need to be done prior to scheduling an MRI.

B.W. Furlong & Associates continues to specialize in lameness workups for performance horses using the latest in digital scintigraphy, and will continue working with Equine MRI of NJ, LLC to fulfill all your lameness and diagnostic needs.
