Practice Spotlight
Cascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic, LLC             


Cascadia EquineCascadia Equine Veterinary Clinic has been using Metron Imaging Software since January 2010.  Dr. Chris Wickliffe started his solo practice three years ago providing cutting edge technology and personalized medicine to his clients in Oregon.  The practice is primarily focused on Equine Podiatry, Advanced Dentistry and Preventative Medicine. 


Dr. Wickliffe originally moved from VetRay to Metron for:  1. All the advanced automatic measurements for podiatry - it speeds up the time as the calculations are completed automatically and 2. The Metron image quality if far superior for both the podiatry and dental images.


He was happy with the previously stated reasons for purchasing Metron but, after watching the online training sessions, he also discovered the built-in Metron reports.  His clients and farriers are both very happy with all the details the Metron reports provide.  Dr. Wickliffe states that, "Metron has increased his referral business because of the quality, details, and ease of reading the reports.  It was a pleasant surprise to not only see the results I was expecting from the guided mark up and image quality but also increase my business with these reports."


Cascadia EquineIn the beginning, Dr. Wickliffe watched many of the online training sessions on the Metron Support Services website.  He states "They were well done, to the point, and self paced."  Because of the ability to stop/start, backup, and watch on his own time, he was able to learn about Metron topics that were important to him and his practice.  Dr. Wickliffe also says, "I appreciate the monthly newsletters and tips. The tips are concise, to the point, and easy to read. I sit down, read them and find useful information every month." 


"Thank you Metron for helping me provide better diagnostics and a better service to my clients."

Testimonials"Staff members were very personable and helped us to understand the problem. Even though it took some time to locate the difficulty they were very patient and stayed past work time to solve the problem. We were very happy with the service provided during our recent contact. Thank you."


"Metron was one of those few items I have used in my practice that has both improved my diagnostic abilities and made money the first day it was in service. The ScanX CR with Metron is a state of the art system that delivers images equal to any other digital radiology system." Read others...
