San Luis Obispo, CA, United States, 2009/05/29 - Vetel Diagnostics has developed a Canon ® flat panel digital radiography system for companion animal veterinarians at an affordable price. It offers exclusive 3-D models as well as motion-over-time composite images and photo overlays.
Vetel Diagnostics, a leading provider of digital radiology to veterinarians announced the availability of its ExplorerCA companion animal digital radiography (DR) system using proven Canon® 50 G detector panels. Along with superior images, the new ExplorerCA is the only system that supports both the Dicom medical file sharing standards and the more common Windows™ based formats. Vetel systems are also unique for their ability to create 3-D models, motion-over-time composite images, and photo overlays from a single digital picture.
James K. Waldsmith, DVM, founded Vetel Diagnostics ten years ago, developing the system based on the needs of his own patients and fellow veterinarians. “This entry level system is perfect for smaller practices because of its unsurpassed image quality, versatility and pricing” said Dr. Waldsmith, adding: “We can tailor the system to fit each veterinarian’s needs—we realize that one size does not fit all.” With the ExplorerCA, veterinarians currently using film can make use of their existing equipment to transition into digital imaging.
Veterinarians new to DR and those already working with DR can upgrade economically, increasing not only diagnostic capabilities but also profitability. In a small, three-veterinarian practice, the system can pay for itself in as little as 18 months by increasing technician productivity and the elimination of rising costs associated with film based radiology.
The ExplorerCA’s panel is manufactured by Canon,® the most widely used panel in veterinary medicine today. In addition to producing the highest quality images in the industry and capturing images in less than 4 seconds, the images are also acquired at lower radiation exposures. This results in safer working conditions for both veterinary staff and patients.
The ExplorerCA system with the Canon® 50 G detector panel is the latest addition to Vetel Diagnostics’ product line, which includes digital radiography systems for equine and companion animals, as well as thermal imaging products. All digital radiography systems from Vetel Diagnostics combine the highest quality components with the industry's most user-friendly and accurate software.
