We are extremely fortunate to have access to the best CT and MR imaging facilities in Christchurch thanks to the dedicated personnel at the Christchurch Radiology Group.  All images are interpreted and reported by Specialist human and veterinary radiologists.

For non-emergency cases, we suggest you book an appointment as soon as possible so we can advise you of the dates and time slots we currently have available.  CT scans are typically preformed on Monday and Thursday evenings. MRI scans are once a week on a Wednesday evening.

In emergency cases, we will always endeavour to do our utmost to accommodate the earliest possible appointment.
