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.
Equina™ In Motion
Recent test of the Asto CT protocol on a live horse demonstrated that a horse can tolerate the scan time and noise associated with the scanner while under sedation. No images were collected. View the video link for results of the test.
