Why Horse Owners Love the Asto CT Equina®:

Developed specifically for imaging both limbs simultaneously and the head & neck region in a mildly sedated standing equine patient, the Equina® is the world’s first dual-axis fan-beam computed tomography (CT) scanner. Your horse can maintain a natural standing position throughout the scan, eliminating the need for general anesthesia and reducing anxiety, ensuring a safe and more comfortable experience.

Rapid Results: With its versatility, in just 30 seconds or less, we can capture detailed images of your horse’s anatomy, allowing for swift diagnosis and treatment planning. The entire process takes 10-30 minutes.

Unrivaled Precision: Computed Tomography (CT) is a noninvasive cross-sectional imaging modality that produces a 3D image of the scanned body part. It’s uses range from diagnosing bone injuries and complex fractures not visible on radiographs, screening horses for stress fracture pathologies before an athletic event, prepurchase exams, diagnosing soft tissue injuries such as tendon lesions, identifying thoracic or pelvic limb lameness, diagnosing diseases of the head, sinuses, teeth and jaw, surgical guidance, diagnosing neck issues such as osteoarthritis and more!
