The LS-1 Scanner, the first in the PIC Symphony(™) series, represents a major breakthrough in automated, large format, core-body imaging, and launches the first product in an entirely new generation of advanced equine imaging products.
The LS-1 is a new generation of imaging.
You now have the power to visualize areas of the anatomy that are difficult or impossible to see with current products. Faster exam times with our automated positioning system reduce staff required. All with better results from leveraging AI-based value-added decision support information. Maximize productivity, profitability and outcomes with the LS-1.
For the first time, capture the entire anatomy you need in one study:
- Head and Cervical Spine
- Skeletal and Spine
The large scan field captures up to 100” wide x 72” high, virtually any anatomic region of the standing horse in less than 2 minutes.
The LS-1 is the first imaging system to focus on whole body visualization. In order to see deep into the equine anatomy, the LS-1 uses a precision, narrow-fan-beam x-ray source and highly collimated single-line, high-sensitivity x-ray detector to virtually eliminate image degradation caused by incident scatter. The narrow-beam source also reduces overall dose to patient and surrounding staff.
For the first time, easily see diagnostic details in difficult areas, in minutes. The LS-1 helps improve outcomes and increases client satisfaction.
- Skull (ethmoid turbinates, nasal turbinates, guttural pouch, ocular, etc)
- Cervical Spine
- Thoracic Spine
- Scapulo-humeral joint
- Lumbar Spine
- Abdominal Scan
- Intestines (contrast studies)
- Organs (colic, hepatic disease, renal disease, etc)
- Lymph nodes
- Reproductive (twins, cryptorchid, etc)
- Pulmonary (pneumonia, pulmonary nodules, bronchitis, etc)
- Tooth root detail
New Screening Exams – adds incremental revenue. Examples:
- Routine colic screening
- Establishing baselines and follow-up metrics
