Equina in Clinical Practice

On November 24, 2018 the first Equina was commissioned at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in Madison, WI. Early testing efforts have focussed on the diverse value of Equina. Follow updates on Equina installation here.

Optimizing Operations

  The system is able to handle patients ranging from a miniature to a draft horse.

●    Define appropriate sedation protocols

●    Minimize scan times

●    Test in multiple sizes & breeds

Demonstrate Detection

  Biaxial articular parasagittal fatigue cracks in subchondral plate of distal end of MCIII; Prelude to condylar stress fracture.

●    Detect pathology in Thoroughbred limb specimens with break-down injuries

●    Equina detection matches traditional CT detection of early signs of stress fractures

Evaluate Clinical Cases

  Axial fracture of proximal MTIV of right rear limb of a 2-year-old AQH; Undetectable by radiograph.

●    Equina standing CT identifies more pathology than standard radiographs

●    Scans were well tolerated by equine patients
