Standing Equine PET Now in Clinical Use at UC Davis
UC Davis has welcomed the latest standing equine PET scanner, the MILEPET, into clinical use. Thanks to funding support from the UC Davis Center for Equine Health and the Stronach Group, the UC Davis veterinary hospital recently installed the most recent MILEPET. After the installation of the first scanner at Santa Anita Park racetrack, a second scanner was set up on the East Coast at the University of Pennsylvania. This newest instrument at UC Davis will provide the most innovative equine imaging technique using only standing sedation to the Northern California horse population.
