Large-animal ultrasound has its challenges, but finding the right imaging solution for your application needs can help your practice in many ways.
We asked equine veterinarian Dr. Bridget Roberts of Nandowra Equine Veterinary Services to discuss what she looks for in an ultrasound machine, as well as the aspects of service and support she relies on to keep her on top of her game and reduce any downtimes for her practice.
Q: Ultrasound forms an essential part of your services. What were you looking for when investing in a machine?
A: BCF Ultrasound’s product range across various veterinary applications is excellent and it was important to me to invest in a quality machine that made me feel confident in the standard of my work.
BCF Ultrasound provides ultrasound solutions for everything from in-clinic to on-farm.
Q: As an equine veterinarian, what features are important to you in an ultrasound machine?
A: Sonosite’s M-Turbo and the Edge stood out due to their mobility, image quality and exceptional durability.
For us, a quality, portable ultrasound machine gives us confidence in the results as well as ease of use. These machines are enjoyable to use, and have also increased profitability for the practice.
Sonosite’s Edge II has been designed to work specifically with the challenges of the rugged veterinary working environment. Featuring armored cable technology, the Edge II is a well-designed and intuitive ultrasound unit.
Q: How important is after-sales service and support to your practice?
A: Our equipment is vital to our practice and BCF Ultrasound understand this. I have found the BCF team to be extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful at every stage. They have provided outstanding service support, technical advice, loan machines and solutions. All of which is important to keep us up and running.
