As originally published in Today’s Veterinary Practice,” March/April 2016 (Volume 6, Number 2) Danielle Mauragis, AS, CVT, and Clifford R. Berry, DVM, Diplomate ACVRUniversity of Florida Welcome to our series of articles on small animal abdominal ultrasonography. The first 3 articles provided an overview of basic ultrasonography principles, while the previous article and this one review a systematic pattern for scanning the abdomen. Future articles will discuss scanning principles for each abdominal organ and system, normal sonographic appearance of abdominal organs [...]
Vertebral Heart Score (VHS) for Companion Animals is now automated! Our canine VHS has been independently verified by Dr. Sonya Gordon and the cardiology team at Texas A&M. In this study, the VHS measurements made by human experts for over 1000 dogs were compared with the measurement made by our AI, and the average difference was 3.3% which might be considered a statistical match. See Vertebral Heart Score mark-up in action: Our AI / Neural Network software platform is available in both a Cloud based application and also a version embedded [...]
When you’re in the market for a new digital radiography system, it can be hard to parse what metrics count most. Can you define the following? DQE – Detector Quantum Efficiency MTF – Modulation Transfer Function lp/mm – line pairs per millimeter If not, you’re in the majority! Watch this quick video to learn why these numbers are important. Consider the numbers and take a look at some options that measure up. More veterinary digital radiography solutions here.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can change the world of medicine. But how? And how will it affect the practice of veterinary medicine? Deep learning is a type of AI in sophisticated software that utilizes neural networks, sometimes referred to as bioinformatics. When applied to diagnostic imaging, deep learning works by analyzing a bank of images to “learn” parts of the anatomy and judge what is considered “normal.” The more images the computer is given, the more precise its understanding becomes. Once [...]
Vetel Diagnostics Outgrows Office of Eighteen Years Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging Company Expands into New Location San Luis Obispo, CA – Vetel Diagnostics, a leading veterinary diagnostic imaging company specializing in digital radiography systems, thermal imaging, ultrasound and endoscopes, has announced a move of its offices and manufacturing facilities to a new larger location just miles away from its original office of eighteen years. Now located in the technology belt of San Luis Obispo, the office on Sacramento Drive has proven to be [...]
What affects image quality in flat panel detectors? 1. Pixel Pitch Optimize the pixel pitch! (Remember, Pixel pitch describes the diameter of round pixels or the distance between dots <pixels> on a display screen. In digital radiography, the optimum pixel pitch is between 100-150 microns). A pixel pitch that is too small will give you blurred edge detail in the image anatomy, and also require a higher dose x-rays. A pixel pitch that is too high will produce a grainy image with poor spatial resolution [...]
