Prisma's advanced imaging technology offers a clear advantage by being able to identify latent defects or life-threatening injuries of the equine athlete that can often go undetected due to limitations of current imaging technology.
Current imaging technology has significant limitations, is potentially dangerous and puts the horse at risk. The inability to accurately detect injuries may lead to an improper diagnosis of latent defects of other serious health issues which could be catastrophic.
The Prisma system overcomes these serious limitations and will safely and conveniently facilitate:
- The discovery of latent musculoskeletal conditions.<
- The reduced risk of catastrophic injury to horse and rider.
- Increased competitive performance.
- Better overall quality of life for the horse.
Formed in 2016, Prisma is the next generation of equine imaging focused on the development of new imaging techniques and modalities capable of capturing the never-before-seen perspectives of the equine patient.
The revolutionary Prisma system captures equine radiography and CT images of the entire anatomy of a standing, weight-bearing, conscious horse allowing for a safer and more effective and efficient diagnosis, prognosis and overall improved patient care compared to current equine imaging practices.
