Sharp, higher-resolution images

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

Less radiation exposure

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

Speed and flexibility

Stay on schedule with image capture in under 3 seconds. And, with IDEXX Web PACS, enjoy a simpler work flow from capture to storage, with the flexibility to view images on any device – at home, on the road or in the office.


"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 minimises my staff’s exposure to potentially harmful radiation,” said Dr Stacey Laursen of Laursen Veterinary Service in Fairgrove, Michigan. “We saw a 50% reduction in the amount of radiation required to get the image quality we needed."


Technological advancement transforms the relationship between radiation dosage and image clarity
