175.MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan for White-tailed Eagle. Sweden, September 2017

According to the article, for the first time ever magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been used for a White-tailed Eagle. The aim was to investigate a mysterious illness that caused the death of several birds. Like this eagle, which was found unable to fly on an island in the Östhammar archipelago, they showed neurological symptoms. Lead poisoning could be ruled out. Viral tests were made, but no infections could be detected. The MRI result was sent to an expert in Hungary. The eagle has now died – it was 23 years old.
