Which scanner is best suited for my needs?
With such a wide range of species, users and uses in the production animal world, it can be difficult to know where to begin.
Pregnancy diagnosis (PDs) and herd health
Reproductive scanning is the main use for our scanners; and we have tailor-made kit for pregnancy diagnosis in cattle, sheep, goats and pigs.
For cattle, the Easiscan range allows for accurate pregnancy diagnosis, ageing of the foetus, diagnosis of reproductive pathologies and reproductive management of the whole herd.
We also have Easi-Scan:Go and Duo-Scan options perfect for later PDs, and these scanners are very popular with our paraprofessional customers.
For reproductive scanning in sheep and pigs, the OviScan and Duo-Scan:Go ranges provide excellent durability, image quality and performance, with the same excellent choice of viewing devices and app capabilities.
What else can I use my scanner for?
The Easiscan also has uses far beyond the reproductive tract. The Easiscan’s linear probe can be used to scan both the udder and thorax. This makes it great for the diagnosis and monitoring of mastitis, and pneumonia in calves.
How can I view the scanner images on a farm?
IMV imaging manufacture all manner of durable, wireless viewing devices to help you, and the farmer, see what you’re scanning. Viewing screens, wrist mounts, monocles and wireless goggles are all tailormade to work seamlessly with your scanner. The IMV Go:scan app allows you to use your own device to view the image, alter the machine settings, calculate foetal age, measure back fat and upload animal data.
