The University of Liverpool’s small animal teaching hospital is staying at the forefront of diagnostic imaging with its recent purchase of a Zonare Z.one ultrasound system from BCF Technology.

[L-R] Thomas Maddox (resident in veterinary diagnostic imaging), Fraser McConnell (senior lecturer in diagnostic imaging) and Tim Trevail (clinician teacher in diagnostic imaging).This is the first veterinary hospital in the UK to acquire Zonare’s “unique” ultrasound technology.

Zonare has pioneered the use of zone sonography to produce increased resolution through continuous transmit focussing, as well as producing novel breakthroughs in ultrasound technology in areas such as sound speed correction and automatic image optimisation.

Fraser McConnell, senior lecturer in diagnostic imaging at Liverpool and a European specialist in diagnostic imaging, approached BCF because the imaging department required an additional ultrasound system due to increased workload.

Mr McConnell said: “The new Zonare will not only compliment our existing systems but also allow us to push forward with new imaging techniques such as contrast imaging of the pancreas and tumours. We are particularly impressed with the image resolution on such a small system, particularly on large and giant breed dogs which can be difficult to image.

“We know BCF Technology well and are confident in their capability to provide high quality imaging equipment and service specifically to the veterinary profession.”
