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.
[currently only available for Germany]
The dicomPACS®vet pre-purchase examination report module allows very fast and professional preparation of reports on the prepurchase examination, including perfect layout and documentation in dicomPACS®vet.

|Reports with images|| |
The required X-ray images, including all modifications such as zoom, measurements and annotations, and are automatically added to the respective diagnosis (e.g. fetlock joint) for documentation in the pre-purchase report. The layout is compiled automatically (page breaks, image positioning etc.)
The complete report (WYSIWYG principle) is automatically stored with the X-ray images. Of course, these reports are also available for patient CDs. This guarantees that images and reports are always kept together.
dicomPACS®vet is a professional marketing tool for referring doctors.

Article in the ‘pferde spiegel’ magazine 4/2008: ‘Digital radiography and X-ray guideline (only in German)
Author Dr. Thomas Weinberger, Equine clinic Burg Müggenhausen, Weilerswist (Germany): „This software aids the vet in conducting the purchase examination and helps avoid possible error sources. It is very helpful and saves a lot of time if the images can be diagnosed upon seeing the images the first time. Besides, it prevents having to send revisions to the customer later on.”
