Advanced Imaging - Weekend Limitations

Updated June 10, 2021

Due to technical staffing shortages, the LVMC may unable to offer advanced imaging (CT or MRI) on weekends. We ask that you call us (Small Animal 515-294-4900, Large Animal 515-294-1500) before referring patients over the weekend to discuss patient status and possible advanced imaging needs. Patients will be assessed on an individual basis and may be referred elsewhere should emergent advanced imaging be required.

Based on current staffing levels, we expect to be able to offer advanced imaging every other weekend throughout the summer; we will let you know if this changes. We will provide reminders prior to each weekend when advanced imaging is unavailable so that we can offer the best care for our mutual patients. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
