Applications for
Every Veterinary Practice

Epica's HDVI technology has vast anatomical applications for any sized patient from a mouse to a mastiff.  With more than 450 installations worldwide, we have cases that show the impact of Vimago™ in your area of interest. 


Vimago™ HDVI is superior to dental radiographs in both speed and diagnostic information. Dentistry patients are on and off the Vimago table in less than 2 minutes. Veterinarians can view the images in 3D and multiplanar reconstruction (MPR).


Ear & Nasal

Vimago™ HDVI can scan a skull in less than 2 minutes and provide diagnostic information in the nasal passages, the inner ears, the TMJ and also in the brain.

Brain Masses

How can a general veterinarian diagnose brain masses? About 80% of brain masses can be identified with Vimago HDVI and the use of IV contrast.

Patients can often present with paresis or full paralysis. Radiographs rarely provide enough information to fully explain these symptoms. HDVI scans with and without myelography can determine where the injury and/or other pathology may exist in the spine.

Joint Health

Radiographs almost always underdiagnose joint conditions and diseases. Scanning joints with HDVI removes the guesswork and provides a very helpful 3D view of the anatomy.

Swallowing & Vomiting

It can be said that there is no better modality for diagnosing swallowing and upper GI issues than fluoroscopy. Plain radiographs cannot provide near the accuracy or information on patients with swallowing issues. However, HDVI scans are also very helpful in 2D MPR and in 3D.

Shunts & Vascular

Shunts and other tortuous vessels are difficult to identify with ultrasound and impossible to see with radiographs. Vimago HDVI users perform angiograms regularly to identify shunts, tortuous vessels, and other vascular anomalies.

Avian & Exotics

How can a veterinarian best evaluate the detailed parts of the avian, exotics, or zoological animal patients? Vimago™ HDVI can scan up to 0.09mm and provide diagnostic information which makes Vimago™ perfect for exotics cases.

Trauma & Emergency

Vimago™ HDVI can scan a skull in less than 2 minutes and provide diagnostic information which makes Vimago™ perfect for trauma cases when every second matters.

Mets & Masses

How can one know if radiographs and ultrasound are telling the whole story about mets, masses, and other foreign growths? In less than ten minutes, the Vimago HDVI scan can identify mets, masses, and other growths down to .09mm (90 microns).

Renal Disease

Radiographs are not effective for diagnosing renal diseases. Ultrasound can be effective but that technology requires an experienced user. HDVI scans can diagnose kidney and adrenal diseases quickly and thoroughly with IV contrast.



One of the greatest challenges to veterinarians is quickly and effectively diagnosing coughing and associated respiratory issues. Using the Fluoroscopy feature on the Vimago can help a veterinarian quickly reach answers for animals in respiratory distress.

GI Foreign Body

Radiographs and ultrasound are often hit or miss when diagnosing (or definitively ruling out) GI foreign bodies. HDVI scans by Vimago can locate GI foreign bodies using both 2D and 3D imaging.

Cancer & Oncology

Vimago™ HDVI allows veterinarians to see the exact size and scope of the masses or lesions. Results can often be viewed in 3D to provide a more accurate understanding of the patient’s prognosis.
