Our Story

Progressive Animal Imaging or PAI as it is now known, started out as an idea from Nick Cicero, Jr., NY/NJ’s leader in human MRI facilities. It happened after his friend Bobby’s dog needed an MRI and was complaining about how expensive it was, and how much time it took out of his week. Nick began investigating how animals get their MRI. After many months of research, he came to realize that he could do it better by saving pet owners a considerable amount of money and more importantly, time, without sacrificing the quality of care. 

Not only would this new idea improve animal and animal owners’ experiences, but it would also allow private practicing veterinarians the ability to add the highest form of diagnostic imaging to their practice. Now, veterinarians could just write a script to PAI, and their owners would be called and booked within a day. After the animal completes the MRI, the veterinarian will have the results and key images on their computer to review with their patients within 48 hours, Stat reads (3-12 hours), and Wet Reads (within an hour) are also available.

Progressive Animal Imaging’s first location is in Westwood NJ, the main hub for servicing veterinarians all over Bergan County NJ, and parts of NY.
