This represents the latest advance in equine radiology technology. The key advantages are exceptional image quality with quite amazing tissue detail, that would have been hard to envision only a few years ago. All parts of the system, the xray generator, the xray detection plate, and the image viewing display are battery operated, meaning xrays can be performed in situations where no power is available. Additionally as the images are now transmitted wirelessly there are no cords to worry about – an important consideration for those fractious horses that are often spooked at cords dragging around them. Finally the system is smaller, lighter and hence more mobile than previous wired digital systems.
