Mobile Pet Imaging Brings Leading-Edge Mobile Veterinary CT Imaging to Florida Pet Owners
Mobile Pet Imaging, a Miami-based, leading-edge veterinary imaging provider, has launched a mobile business to bring this state-of-the-art 3D CT Technology to a greater number of pet owners throughout Miami, Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, and Monroe counties. Doctors Pedro Armstrong and Xavier Meaux started this service in November of 2014.
Mobile Pet Imaging is utilizing Vimago™ HD CT Scanner in a custom-built, mobile truck that was specifically designed to safely transport high-tech equipment and provide a safe, clean and tranquil place to perform the procedures.
Vimago™ is a new platform that uses 60-90% less radiation than standard CT, allowing the device to be used in a mobile setting. The reduction is radiation reduces the shielding requirements required by higher radiation standard CT devices. Vimago™ was engineered specifically for the veterinary industry and can accommodate a large range of sizes, which many other standard CT devices cannot. Furthermore, Vimago™ is the first device in the world to employ HD (High-Definition) 3D Technology; resulting in crystal clear 3D images, enabling veterinarians to provide better, faster and more accurate diagnoses and treatment.
“Epica™ is always proud to partner with veterinarians that are pushing the boundaries of medicine to improve patient care. Dr. Pedro Armstrong and his team at Mobile Pet Imaging are doing just that, with this mobile platform. We know, without a doubt, that our technology will help save more pets lives,” commented Greg Stoutenburgh, CEO, Epica™ Medical Innovations.
"Having been an internal medicine specialist for over 12 years in the Miami area, I know first-hand the importance of CT scans when diagnosing our patients. In addition, having created the ability to bring this cutting edge technology TO THE VETS in our mobile unit and making it affordable is a game changer since now more pets will benefit and be diagnosed faster," added Dr. Pedro Armstrong, DVM, DACVIM and owner of Mobile Pet Imaging.
Epica™ Medical Innovations, a subsidiary of Epica International, Inc, designs, engineers and builds innovative and game changing Veterinary CT Scanners and Regenerative Therapy Devices available for veterinary use.
Leveraging science and technology with expert engineering and an understanding of veterinary practice, Epica Medical Innovations delivers products that improve the quality of care, safety, efficiency, and profitability while increasing the overall capabilities of the practice. Better, safer, smarter products -that is "The Epica™ Way."
