Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center, in collaboration with Four Dimensional Digital Imaging (4DDI), offers a first-ever, robotics-controlled imaging system for use in the standing and moving horse.
Penn Vet is the first veterinary teaching hospital in the world using the EQUIMAGINE™ system, which has clinical and research applications for both animal and human medicine.
The EQUIMAGINE™ system’s robotics-driven design provides an unlimited range of motion and unencumbered access to the horse’s entire anatomy, capturing the equine anatomy while the horse is:
- In motion
The robotics-driven technology unites automation with powerful algorithms that can perform multiple modalities, unencumbered by an enclosed gantry or a C-arm, making it possible to scan any part of the horse, including the:
- Lower neck
- Upper leg
The quality and resolution of the real-time images created with the EQUIMAGINE™ system far exceeds existing technology, making imaging more efficient and effective. Three-dimensional computed tomography (CT) scans take less than a minute, and are much more detailed than previously existing technologies.
