Small Animal MRI-Based Neurology

Held bi-monthly, Journal Club interviews the primary author of a recent small animal MRI-based neurology paper. We discuss how the case was put together, what the results are, and what this means for the next patient that comes into your clinic. The webinars are broadcast live on Neurology for Vets’ Facebook page and are also available for review as recorded sessions for those unable to attend on the day. The live audience is encouraged to ask the author questions about the study at the end of the interview.

December’s Discussion

December’s Journal Club will be held on Dec 7th 2pm ET / 7PM UK time and hosted by Dr Carlotta Remelli who leads the panel discussion:

MRI Investigation of Steroid-Responsive Meningitis

Steroid-responsive meningitis-arteritis (SRMA) is an immune-mediated disorder of young dogs for which there is no definitive ante-mortem diagnostic test. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can be used to rule out other differentials. However, a greater understanding of what to expect when imaging SRMA is needed. The aims of the study were to retrospectively investigate the characteristics of MRI studies of the cervical spine of dogs diagnosed with SRMA. The diagnostic capability of MRI obtained with low-field and high-field units will also be compared.

Dr Carlotta Remelli

Dr Remelli graduated in Veterinary Medicine in July 2021 at the University of Padova (UniPD), Italy, Dept. Animal Medicine, Productions, and Health. During her final two years of study at UniPD, she was an intern student at the Neurology Unit of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH-UniPD). Dr Remelli is currently taking part in a one-year Rotational Training Program at the AniCura Veterinary Hospital I Portoni Rossi in Bologna. She will also be taking part in a Rotational Internship Program starting in January 2023 at the same Institution.
