ABOUT OUR VIMAGO™ IMAGING PLATFORM
The Vimago™ imaging platform employs HDVI™ technology, which produces incredibly detailed, 3D images of your pet's anatomy.
Vimago™ also has onboard Digital Radiography and Fluoroscopy; which allows us to create real-time, moving, x-ray images to help better enable diagnosis and aid us with surgical outcomes.
Vimago™ uses considerably less radiation than other devices, which decreases your pet's radiation exposure time compared to other imaging techniques.
WHAT IS VOLUMETRIC IMAGING?
HDVI™ (High-Definition Volumetric Imaging) is a new, proprietary and patented imaging technology, similar to CT (Computed Tomography) that provides unprecedented diagnostic and interventional information for clinicians.
HDVI™ data can provide resolution as small as 0.09mm (about the thickness of a human hair). Clinicians can see the data in any angle, thickness or orientation. The results are superior diagnostic confidence - and why HDVI™ is the new standard for primary imaging.
REASONS VIMAGO™ IMAGING IS RECOMMENDED:
- Tumors: identification, assessment and staging
- Trauma: fractures, dislocations, disk herniations, and soft tissue injuries
- Foreign bodies: determining surgical vs. non-surgical with better diagnostic success than traditional radiographs.
- Discovering abnormalities anywhere in the body
- To assist in surgical planning
WHAT IS FLUOROSCOPY?
Fluoroscopy is a type of medical imaging that shows a continuous x-ray image on a monitor, sort of like an x-ray movie.
Diagnostic Fluoroscopy may be used for: coughing, swallow studies, shunts, collapsing tracheas, and more.
Interventional Fluoroscopy may be used for biopsies, endoscopy, and more.
For Referring Veterinarians:
We welcome referral imaging cases, for these cases the patient can be referred for us for imaging, at which point we can send the study to you for interpretation, or for you to send to a radiologist that you work with. However, we also work with a remote radiology company Peregrine Radiology which we can send off for an additional fee for interpretation and radiology report. Prior to referral, please fill out our referral imaging form. If you have questions about the machine capabilities, imaging quality or for questions about complex image planning, please call our office to speak with one of our Doctors.
