Most horses that require veterinary care have issues related to lameness. The “gold standard” for imaging soft tissue is an MRI scan, but MRI can be expensive and horses have to be anaesthetised to fit their legs into human scanners. 15 years ago Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging Ltd started development on the world’s first (and only) standing equine MRI scanner. Today, these scanners are used at universities and equine referral practices in over 25 countries. Dr Steve Roberts is the technical director at Hallmarq and will discuss the creation and development of this unique scanner and the potential future advances and applications.

Dr Steve Roberts PhD Technical and Operations Director at Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging Ltd.

Steve has over 25 years’ experience developing MRI systems and a PhD in MRI physics. He has worked on both high and low field MRI systems, including obtaining the first 4.7 Tesla human head images and has worked on the development of more than 15 different types of MRI scanner. Steve has led the development of the world’s only standing equine MRI scanner for the past 13 years.
