Clinicians, techs, residents, and students at the MSU Veterinary Medical Center use imaging machines to treat patients every day. Thanks to an anonymous donor, that treatment just got a little bit faster, a little bit clearer—and a lot cooler.

The Hospital is the first veterinary school to acquire a brand new GE Revolution EVO 64 Slice CT Scanner. The scanner will improve Hospital services with up to:

  • 100% more spatial resolution and distortion reduction
  • 82% less radiation exposure for patients
  • 40% increased workflow efficiency with more automation

The new CT scanner also will allow for faster scan times and lighter sedation instead of general anesthesia.

“This is a true gift for our students and our patients,” said Rex Miller, radiology services manager. “Our patients will receive even better care and our students now have access to new technology. We are all so grateful to our anonymous donor for funding such a generous and practical gift.”

Donations to the College and Hospital have always been a vital component of improving and supporting the education of MSU veterinary and veterinary technology students.

“Having the latest in technology for our students puts them a step above,” said Dr. John Baker, dean of the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine. “Our donors are pivotal in helping us offer the highest quality of veterinary education, whether it’s through equipment funding, donating to scholarships, or some other generous act.”
