Sharp, higher-resolution images

Sharp, higher-resolution images improve the visualization of dense anatomy and provide the detail you need to make confident medical decisions for your patients.

Less radiation exposure

New technology minimizes harmful radiation exposure for you, your staff, and your patients. Lower radiation is especially important for veterinary technicians.2

Speed and flexibility

Stay on schedule with image capture in under 3 seconds. And with IDEXX Web PACS Software—the imaging storage solution—improve care, lower risks, and connect your veterinary practice.

"The ImageVue DR50 system allows me to take the best care of my patients and my staff. Not only does it give me the clear images required to diagnose and treat my patients, but it minimizes my staff’s exposure to potentially harmful radiation. We saw a 50% reduction in the amount of radiation required to get the image quality we needed."
