Veterinary imaging is an established subject discipline in the field of veterinary diagnostics and treatment. The market for veterinary imaging has continued to grow at a momentous pace and has gained a larger scope of applicability owing to the significant development in the fields of imaging modalities and technologies in the recent past.
Global Veterinary Imaging Market – Market Potential
Less invasive and remote imaging devices are gaining large scale adoption in the veterinary segment. A number of companies are introducing veterinary imaging devices that can be used in mobile settings. An instance is the Vimago by Epica Medical Innovations, a California-based manufacturer of innovative imaging and regerative therapy devices for human as well as animal patients. Vimago is a computed tomography (CT) imaging technology that uses nearly 60-90% less radiation as compared to conventional CT scanners, making the device easily suitable for mobile settings.
The device recently came into wider attention when its use for performing a scan on a marmoset was telecast on a Nat Geo Wild show, Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER. The provider, Miami based mobile veterinary imaging company Mobile Pet Imaging, transported the high-definition, mobile CT scanner, Vimago, to a clean, safe, and tranquil place in a custom-built truck designed specifically to safely transport high-tech instruments.
