Sedated, stationary MRI is the standard of excellence recognized worldwide as the correct way to scan anatomy without compromising image quality. The O-scan equine covers imaging of the foot, pastern, fetlock, high suspensory, carpus and tarsus regions of the equine limb.
The O-scan equine is the ideal cost-effective MRI to clearly distinguish between bone edema, ligaments and tendons ensuring accurate imaging, through excellent contrast resolution and image quality; essential for optimal diagnosis.
High Performance MRI at a fraction of the cost
The O-scan equine offers unsurpassable performance, comparable to the image quality of 1.5T systems. The system covers imaging of the foot, pastern, fetlock, high suspensory, carpus and tarsus regions of the equine limb.
With the special 3D SHARC sequence for articular cartilage evaluation and the XBONE to evaluate bone marrow edema and soft tissue structures, you can easily make a complete assessment of the suspected pathology in a very short examination time.
The most complete Pre-Purchase Examination (PPE) can also be executed very effectively with the O-scan equine, to evaluate the musculoskeletal system, where most abnormalities such as conformational defects, previous injuries and surgical scars can be identified as well as current soundness.
