Calibration: Your tool to great diagnostic images
Calibration is the door opener to "advance" diagnostic imaging. Without calibration, all you are doing is looking at pictures. With calibration, your computer becomes a powerful tool helping you to diagnose and treat.
Equine - the Metron Block is an easy-to-use device that makes image calibration a breeze. If you think you need one, buy two. Don't try to use some scrap piece of wood as the step for the second foot.
Once you have acquired the image, Metron steps you through the calibration steps using the block. At that point, you are also able to start using the mark-up and guided mark-up features. In equine, no other product is even a close second to Metron.
Small animal - The auto scaler can be used for equine stifle images but is also an excellent tool to easily calibrate small animal images. Once you have acquired the image, Metron walks you through the calibration steps using the Auto-Scaler. After calibration, you can use the Metron mark-up and guided mark-up features.
With calibration, it is a snap to measure distances, thickness, and offsets - just point and click.
Metron has a growing list of mark-up assistances tools aimed at speed, accuracy, and consistency in the markup process. Taking time and care to calibrate images will allow you to get the most out of your Metron system.
