“Sprint™ has opened up greener pastures for my practice as I can now reach clients and patients wherever they may be. 100% battery power operation increases revenue and simplifies my diagnostic process.” Dr. Leslie Schur, DVM Desert Pines Equine Ctr.

Sprint Ultralight DR™ boasts the industry’s first deployment of the Apple® MacBook Pro® with Retina® display, considered the best display in the world and all-flash storage, which is faster and far more reliable than a traditional hard drive. Combining Sprint’s state of the art hardware with SoundSafe™, the original and largest veterinary image cloud enables users to quickly upload, manage and share images with colleagues and clients.

DR or digital radiography uses a digital detector panel to convert X-ray information into digital images. DR panels have historically been wired to an acquisition computer and the computer is plugged in to a power source. A synchronization cable is also used to connect the X-ray generator to the acquisition computer. With the recent advent of wireless systems, the DR panel cable has been removed but the acquisition computer has still required plug in power, leaving the user tethered to a power source. Sound-Eklin’s Sprint™ has taken wireless a step farther and created a 100% wireless solution including battery power, wireless panel and wireless synch to the generator, a true leap ahead in the industry.
