The new standard of care in equine imaging is here
EQUINA® BY ASTO CT® IS A MULTI-SLICE HELICAL CT THAT ALLOWS SIMULTANEOUS IMAGING OF TWO LIMBS OF A STANDING, SEDATED EQUINE PATIENT. EQUINA® HAS SCANNED HUNDREDS OF EQUINE PATIENTS AROUND THE WORLD. WITHOUT THE NEED FOR GENERAL ANESTHESIA, SCANNING IS SAFE, SIMPLE, AND STANDING.
Multi-slice, helical CT with sub-millimeter resolution
Beveled gantry opening to allow for extended cervical spine and proximal limb coverage
Non-slip shock-absorbing surfaces and collision sensors
Easy-to-use push-button system pendant controller
User-friendly moveable operator console (OC)
Open walk-through design for safe and fast standing limbs
Enclosures are sealed to IP53 standard for easy cleaning and use in dusty environments
MADE BY VETERINARY DOCTORS FOR VETERINARY EQUINE PRACTICE
HIGH QUALITY IMAGES
High-resolution multi-slice CT images to detect early signs of subtle stress response utilizing our bone or soft tissue window.
COST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION
Our new subscription model allows clinicians to install the Equina while retaining all the revenue. Less staff and resources involved in imaging.
NATURAL WEIGHT-BEARING POSITION
Equina images bone and soft tissue of limb pairs up to carpus or tarsus of standing equine patients.
SCANS IN SECONDS
The Equina’s 30 second and under scan time allows patients to be in and out in 10 minutes.
Equina’s 92cm tapered-bore allows easy image positioning of all horse sizes and horizontal and vertical CT-gantry travel images head to lower limb pairs.
LESS LIABILITY AND RISK
No general anesthesia with natural standing positions, equals less risk for the horse and no disruption to training regimen. This means less liability for vet clinics.
