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 additional 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.
