While outfitting a veterinary practice with imaging equipment is very much like outfitting a practice that serves human patients, it pays to be aware of the particulars that set the process apart. Through our experiences working with veterinary practices, we've seen a number of well-laid plans change, adapt, or go back to the drawing board altogether because of one or more of these differences.

To help those of you who may be in the market for veterinary X-ray or C-arm machines, we want to share three considerations that many people overlook as they begin to plan their veterinary imaging equipment project.
