Universal Medical Systems of Ohio Introduces 'Charlie,' World's First Portable, Battery-Operated, Multi-Slice CT Scanner for Pets
Date:9/15/2009

on. "It is simply more portable and easier to use," he adds.

According to David Zavagno, president and CEO of Universal Medical Systems of Ohio, there is no other high-tech diagnostic CT imaging system that is as portable and affordable for pets.

"Charlie eliminates the prohibitive costs of power installations, leaded rooms and climate controls and represents a savings of $30,000-$50,000 for starters," Zavagno says.

Charlie offers the veterinarian a compact, lightweight, portable, high-speed, battery- and 120-volt-line powered system while generating advanced multi-slice high resolution images (up to eight CT slices per revolution) in a customized 12-inch pet-focused aperture.

Charlie also provides for contrast study protocols such as CTA and CTP, which become extremely valuable in making diagnoses. And, since the Charlie is a fraction of the size and weight of a traditional fixed scanner, limited installation is required.

A veterinarian or technologist can be trained quickly to conduct a CT study on the Charlie system. A study, in fact, can be initiated with the touch of a few panels.

Interestingly, Dr. Richardson, who has his own small vineyard in the backyard of his Sacramento-area home, decided he'd try to scan some grapes and later a rose. He says the images "were truly artistic in detail and resolution."

While Charlie was not designed for artistic applications, Dr. Richardson says he'd like to show his fellow doctors in his local veterinary association these results.

"As I said, we are just starting to put Charlie to use at the hospital. My staff and I are taken by what this system will do and at the very high quality of the scans produced."
