Standing Equine CT Solution

Another Revolution in Standing Resolution

Qalibra and Canon Medical have partnered to introduce a unique standing equine CT system to the market.

A Canon Medical Aquilion Large Bore CT is mounted on a movable platform. The platform allows high-quality imaging of the distal limb, head and proximal neck in the standing horse. Under general anaesthesia any volume under 90cm can be imaged.

The unique design ensures the safety of the horse at all times and its versatility enables the generation of high-quality imaging. This innovation in equine CT will boost the use of CT in equine orthopaedics and allow veterinarians to better understand pathologies and develop new treatment options.

“ I believe this setup of gantry and platform will powerboost the use of CT in Equine Medicine.”

- Dr. Filip Vandenberghe,
Bosdreef Equine Referral Hospital, Moerbeke-Waas,
