Equina™ by Asto CT™ is a multi-slice helical CT that allows simultaneous imaging of two limbs of a standing, sedated equine patient. Equina™ has scanned hundreds of equine patients around the world. Without the need for general anesthesia, scanning is safe, simple and standing.
“The CT has changed the way we can evaluate lameness and orthopedic injury in the distal limb and has virtually replaced radiography (X-rays) as the gold standard diagnostic for disease of the teeth and skull,” says Samantha Morello, clinical associate professor of large animal surgery at the SVM.
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. Low radiation exposure risk for patients and operators.
