A Clinician's Guide: When to Use MRI or CT

by Liz Watson, DVM, MS, Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Radiology Veterinary Imaging

Deciding which cross-sectional imaging modality to pursue first is not always as simplistic as 'CT is best for bone and MR is designed to image soft tissues.'  We often need information regarding soft tissue and bone to formulate our clinical plans.  Here are a few clinical presentation examples to help guide your decision.

Intracranial disease - In nearly all cases, MR imaging will provide the greatest clinical information.  In patients with seizures, cranial nerve deficits, behavior or personality disorders, states of altered consciousness, head tilt, circling, visual deficits related to innervations of the eye, and head and limb ataxia, MR is the preferred imaging modality.  MR provides greater...   Click here to request a full copy of this comprehensive guide.

Epilepsy in dogs five years of age and older: 99 cases (2006-2011
Abstract-Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Assocation February 15, 2015, Vol. 246, No. 4, Pages 447-450
Conclusion: A substantial proportion of dogs > 5 years of age had primary epilespy. Results indicated that lack of abnormalities on neurologic examination does not exclude the possibility of intracranial lesions, and MRI with CSF analysis (when applicable) should be recommended for all dogs with onset of seizures at > 5 years of age.
