Volume 22(4), December 2012 SPECIAL ISSUE

Focus on... Spain

Commissioned paper

In this new series, we will visit colleagues of one of the FECAVA member countries, and talk to them about their daily work, their practices and their challenges. In this first of the series, the focus is on Spain. The profession is currently facing the effects of the economic crisis and a steep increase in VAT on their services... Nevertheless, our colleagues remain cautiously optimistic.

Computed Tomography (CT or CAT scan) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR or MRI) are modern imaging procedures that have been established in human medicine for many years. Today, both procedures are often available in veterinary medicine and have proven their value in the detection of neurologic, orthopaedic, oncologic, and other diseases.
