Has anyone used this service for an MRI for their dog? Here's the link:

Companion MRI

They're located in New York. Any comments, good or bad, would be appreciated.

Thanks for the replies.
There are actually MRI facilities very close to where I live, but the price difference between OVC and Companion MRI is staggering. Even with the drive across the border, there is a huge cost savings and that money can go towards other costs, like chiropractic treatments and hydrotherapy.
I wanted to make sure that it was a credible organization first, before looking any further into the procedure.

I'd be very interested in who's interpreting the exams. The prettiest, best performed exam in the world is worthless without an educated set of eyes looking at it.

That's a good point. According to their information, the MRI is interpreted by a veterinary board-certified radiologist and results are sent to the client's vet. They also provide a disc containing the images that you can take with you after the procedure.
