Professional software for thorough and complete documentation of X-ray services for horse pre-purchase examinations

Pre-sale and pre-purchase examinations for horses are always particularly challenging for veterinarians. Such specialised examinations must be carried out swiftly yet very meticulously and documented very well, in great detail and extremely consistently. After all, the owner and the prospective buyer of the animal justifiably expect optimal service when it comes to undertaking the examination and presenting the results in a professional and comprehensible fashion. Since administrative work is bothersome yet vital for veterinarians, too, we have developed a report module specifically for X-ray services relating to pre-purchase examinations in cooperation with renowned specialists.

This  pre-purchasing software module enables the quick and easy compilation of reports by automatically assembling X-ray images and providing the corresponding standardised texts. It follows the “X-ray guideline” by the German organisations “Gesellschaft für Pferdemedizin e.V.” (German Equine Veterinary Association GEVA) and “Bundestierärztekammer e.V.” (Federal association of veterinarians). As a special feature, the reference X-ray images contained in the guideline are shown for each examination. 

The pre-purchasing software module for the new X-ray guideline is an optional component of our diagnostic software dicomPACS®vet  as well as the diagnostic and acquisition software dicomPACS®DX-R.
