'Ralphy The Sacramento Beagle' First Patient to be Scanned by 'Charlie-SPS,' World's First Portable, Battery-Operated, Multi-Slice CT Scanner for Smaller Pets
Date:8/27/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 27, /PRNewswire/ -- When Ralphy, a six-year-old beagle from Sacramento, needed comprehensive diagnosis to help generate insight into the sudden near paralysis of his rear legs, Dr. Robert Richardson of Campus Commons Pet Hospital, Inc. turned to his newly installed "Charlie-SPS," (Small Pet Scanner) the world's first fully portable small-pet-dedicated, multi-slice CT scanner.

Dr. Richardson, a noted veterinarian specializing in surgeries of the spine as well as orthopedics, obtained the Charlie CT scanner from Universal Medical Systems, Inc. of Ohio (UMS of Ohio).

Universal Medical Systems is the leading worldwide supplier of innovative veterinary computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems. Campus Commons Pet Hospital, in which Dr. Richardson is owner and president, had acquired the Charlie-SPS system just one week prior to Ralphy's emergency, and in so doing it became the first veterinary hospital in the nation to offer Charlie to its patient animals.
