About Prisma Imaging
Prisma Imaging™ is focused on the development of newly designed radiographic imaging techniques and modalities which will be capable of capturing never-before seen perspectives of the equine and large animal patient. Prisma’s key objective is to provide the practitioner with the means by which to achieve more effective and efficient diagnosis, prognosis and overall improved patient care, compared to current imaging practices.
Today’s radiographic imaging technology for the equine industry has significant limitations, and is not reliable for diagnostics of the high-mass areas of the patient, such as the spine, pelvis and abdomen. Prisma’s novel technology will open up an entirely new landscape in equine and large animal imaging, improving the quality and reliability of overall patient care.
In addition to recognizing the merits of developing a ground-breaking, highly beneficial diagnostic technology, Prisma is equally committed to supporting the humane treatment of animals in all categories, including our beloved pets, animals that live in captivity (in zoos and nature habitats), and in our food chain.

From 1992 until 2001, he worked for Ronald Perelman’s holding company, MacAndrews and Forbes, Inc., where he worked in a variety of capacities at the M&F companies. In 2002, he started a company, in the housewares industry that he built and successfully divested in 2012. After selling his company, Michael started Prisma Imaging in 2016. His motivation to start Prisma was to develop a solution that addressed the deficiencies that exist in equine imaging, his desire to create new beneficial technology, and his attraction to the contagious passion that exists within the equestrian community. Michael is committed to Prisma for the long-term, beyond the equine market and into the next phase of potential expanded industries that will become viable as Prisma’s technology advances.
