World's First Portable, Battery-Operated, Equine-Dedicated CT Solution Installed at Penn Vet's New Bolton Center
Date:2/23/2009

"Unique portability . . . Fast scan . . . low operating cost," says veterinary school's clinician

KENNETT SQUARE, Pa., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Medical Systems, Inc. (UMS) of Ohio, the leading worldwide supplier of innovative veterinary computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems, recently unveiled EQUUS One -- the world's first equine-dedicated, portable, battery-operated CT scanner -- at the New Bolton Center in Kennett Square, Pa., the large-animal facility of the University of Pennsylvania's School of Veterinary Medicine.

Shortly after the unveiling, EQUUS One performed a scan on an 11-year-old gelding. Midge Leitch, VMD, the clinician in Radiology at New Bolton Center, explained that, "this horse had been diagnosed with a keratoma, a benign tumor in his hoof. The CT was utilized to locate the area in the hoof wall through which the surgeons would access the keratoma while causing the least damage to the hoof capsule. In the past, this access point was determined either by measurements made on radiographs or by a location on the hoof wall determined by MRI; the former of these methods was subject to a margin of error and MRI required a longer time under anesthesia."

"Maneuvering large animals into correct positions with a standard CT is not only physically challenging for the veterinary staff, but more importantly requires moving the patient to the operating room following the scan, if surgery is the treatment of choice," she continued. "Now, we can bring the CT to the horse. And, in this particular case, the scan of the hoof took us about 90 seconds. With its unique portability, superior scan and low operating cost, EQUUS One is an ideal CT solution for any veterinary center."
