“Integrating love and compassion for animals with technology”
Veterinary Imaging Specialists of Alaska, (VISA) was formed with the goal of bringing the superior diagnostic value of Veterinary MRI, CT and Fluoroscopy to the referring veterinary community at a reasonable cost. VISA created a strategic, in-house partnership with the veterinarians of Pet Emergency Treatment Center, on Dowling Road to bring these valuable diagnostic modalities to the veterinary community. This technology has been available to Alaska’s veterinarians on a very limited basis at some human imaging centers on an after- hours basis but it has otherwise been unavailable for the majority of the referring clinicians and their patients. The limited availability of advanced imaging services required many pet owners to travel to the lower 48 states for CT and MRI services requiring hours of travel and hundreds of additional dollars for the care of comfort of their pets. VISA makes these extremely important diagnostic imaging tools available to clinicians and pet owners at an affordable cost without sacrificing diagnostic quality. We use the same CT and MRI scanners that are used for imaging humans with the same attention to high quality scans and patient care.
