The Next Disruptor in Equine Imaging and Diagnostics
Why Should We Care?
The nation’s 7.2 Million horses play a major role and have a significant financial impact to our economy contributing $122 Billion and 1.7 Million jobs.
The Equine Patient Needs Precise Medical Imaging
For the industry to thrive, horses need to be kept healthy and safe.
Radiography and CT Imaging are ideal to assess the health, injuries and recovery of horses.
But these critically important diagnostic methods are underutilized and not enough is being done to protect these majestic animals and this lucrative industry.
Here is a look why
Current CT Radiography Has Too Many Limitations
CT radiological technology is not well-suited for equine patients. It requires the patient to be anesthetized which is dangerous and potentially life-threatening. It also necessitates a team to awkwardly position an unconscious twelve-hundred-pound patient into a CT donut. Lastly, it can’t image the high-mass parts of the horse which often leads to an incomplete or faulty diagnosis.
Requires horses to be anesthetized, which can be potentially dangerous for the patient
Significant added cost, time and requires multiple personnel
Cannot show certain high-mass body parts (abdomen, hips, axial skeleton).
