Iams and North Carolina State University have opened a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) center for animals at NCSU’s Centennial Campus.

The Iams Pet Imaging Center is the first commercial presence at NCSU’s new biomedical campus. It is the second MRI center opened by Iams.

“Iams is in the pet well-being business, so this is an exciting way to bring to local veterinarians a better methods to diagnose disease conditions in pets while we provide the MRI experience to the veterinarians of tomorrow,” said Jeffrey Ansell, president of Iams.

The NCSU veterinary school is located close to the MRI center.

The center uses technology from ProScan International.
