CLEVELAND — Universal Medical Systems Inc.'s Vet-MR Grande™, the first dedicated dual-purpose magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system for all small and large animals, was unveiled at the North American Veterinary Conference (NAVC).
The Vet-MR Grande offers the veterinary market superior imaging and versatility, and is Universal Medical's first-to-market product line of veterinary CT and MRI systems, the company says.
The Vet-MR Grande is manufactured by Genova, Italy-based Esaote.
"The Vet-MR Grande offers veterinarians and equine patients an exponentially improved ability to accurately diagnose the cause of lameness, as well as sinus, neurological and cervical problems," says Dr. Alexia McKnight, assistant professor of radiology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.
The Vet-MR Grande's large surface-scanning area and specially designed magnet address these problems to improve image quality. The system produces advanced diagnostic images from stationary scans of the head, neck and legs of large animals.
The Vet-MR Grande is a clinically refined system designed and built from a platform of experience derived from more than 1,000 machine installations worldwide.
The Vet-MR Grande is available for purchase or lease. The product line is also supported by accessible customer service and does not require a build-out of special scanning rooms, the company adds.
