The Asto CT™ Solution
The Asto CT™ Equina™ offers a paradigm shift in equine x-ray CT imaging by providing rapid 3D imaging of the lower limbs and head without subjecting the horses to general anesthesia. With its high-precision robotic technology, the Equina™ is capable of safely imaging the lower limbs under load, as well as the head and neck of the standing horse in a single series. Major benefits include:
High-resolution multi-slice CT images
Fast scan times suitable for a sedated horse
Large-bore gantry for easy positioning and imaging
Flexible horizontal and vertical CT-gantry travel to easily image from head to lower limbs
The system can also be arranged to easily provide standard whole-body scanning of small animals. The wide combination of indications is a cost-effective solution for any veterinary practice.
Simple: Remote control positioning and a wide field of view enables simultaneous imaging of two limbs with a 30 second scan time.
Flexible: The Equina™ robotic gantry allows imaging of equine limbs to the mid-carpus/tarsus, and imaging of the head & neck.
Diagnostic: Equina™ uses modern multi-slice CT scanning providing high-quality images to detect early signs of subtle stress responses.
Rugged: The Equina™ scanner has been proven to withstand the demands of transit and the requirements of routine equine use.
Safe: No anesthesia required.
