In the spring of 2002, Virginia Equine Imaging introduced digital radiography to its growing list of new imaging technologies. The DR system is manufactured by Sound-Eklin Medical Systems who is dedicated to delivering the world's finest direct digital radiography and image management systems to equine veterinary practices. VEI was the first veterinary clinic in the world to utilize this technology.
Digital radiography provides the veterinarian with an x-ray image that can be viewed on a high resolution monitor within 4 seconds without the need for film developing. In order to obtain the image, a conventional x-ray camera is used to expose a digital cassette or detector. The detector is attached via a cable to a portable processor that captures the image electronically. Once the image is obtained, the veterinarian is capable of viewing the image almost instantaneously on a specially designed workstation for final clinical review and printing. On the workstation, the image can be magnified, contrasted, or edge enhanced to provide the best possible results.
Virginia Equine Imaging has both in-clinic (EDR-1) and portable (EDR-3) DR units. Specific advantages of digital radiography for equine diagnostic imaging include:
