The Digital Veterinary Clinic
With the acceleration of the trend towards filmless imaging at veterinary clinics and hospitals, a cost-effective yet reliable and scalable digital image archiving and management solution is required. While the modality of choice in veterinary is typically Computed Radiography (CR), largers sites or vet hospitals may also have other modalities such as CT and MRI. CR's affordability combined with excellent image quality and the ability to use existing x-ray systems allows veterinary clinics to realize the workflow improvements of going digital as well as avoiding chemical and film costs. Unfortunately, most PACS are too expensive, require significant IT skills and in general are not tailored to the needs of veterinary clinics.
