Meet Pegaso™ — A QUANTUM LEAP in diagnostic, interventional, and intraoperative imaging with a platform that was designed to keep horses calm and safe. Pegaso™ can scan the head and neck of a standing horse. Pegaso™ can scan with 3D resolution that is up to1481 times higher than conventional CT, while using significantly less radiation. Fluoroscopy is available with the push of a button. The Pegaso™ delivers soft and hard tissue imaging that is so stunning, the world has never seen anything like it.
Pegaso™ uses Epica’s™ new, patent pending HD CT™ technology to provide micro CT quality resolution and soft tissue contrast that will make even previously impossible-to-see lesions clear. With a quick and intuitive workflow, and clever ergonomic features, it’s clear that Pegaso™ was engineered and designed specifically for the needs of the equine veterinarian. Owning a Pegaso™ will change the way you practice, image, and diagnose. Interventional and interoperative imaging is made extraordinarily simple with the flexible and mobile design of the Pegaso™, resulting in a multi-modality masterpiece that outperforms solo designed systems in each respective modality.
Frustrated with the reality that equine practitioners who needed to utilize CT, were being forced to use conventional CT scanners that are difficult to use, have low resolution, high-radiation, small gantry, and are expensive to maintain devices made for a different purpose; Epica™ set out to revolutionize equine CT, and we succeeded.
The Pegaso™ HD CT™ offers resolution about 1481 times higher* than conventional CT. With incredible contrast to allow extraordinary imaging of soft and hard tissue. Viewing micro fractures, ligament tears, cartilage lesions and other lesions that have never been visible in the past, are now simple to image with the Pegaso™ and the results are stunning. The 1.2 meter variable geometry, tilting gantry, allows scanning of a standing head and neck. Whether your focus is on utility, quality, simplicity, or flexibility Pegaso™ HD CT™ technology changes everything about equine CT.
High-resolution images, auto brightness/ contrast, and frame rates from 1-16 fps. Interventional imaging quality that beats dedicated systems selling for more than $1 million. Any orientation of the patient may be viewed and gantry can move over the patient during the study.
Standing head and neck, distal limbs, stifle, vertebrae to C7-T1 can all be easily scanned using the Pegaso™ HD CT™ platform.
The system comes with an acquisition and viewing software built in including all types of 3D rendering and modeling. Support may be given by remote control of the system at any time via a WiFi connection.
