Asto CT, a Serra Capital III portfolio company, was recently featured in the Wisconsin State Journal. The Asto CT Equina™ offers a paradigm shift in equine x-ray CT imaging by providing rapid 3D imaging of the lower limbs and head without subjecting the horses to general anesthesia. With its high-precision robotic technology, the Equina™ is capable of safely imaging the lower limbs under load, as well as the head and neck of the standing horse in a single series.
Fractures for horses can be deadly and hard to detect. Often it happens that by the time the broken bone is detected, it is too late and the horse must be put down. Asto CT is trying to change this with their revolutionary scanner. It indeed will be a lifesaver for horses if the company is successful.
