EQUINE STANDING CT

University of Melbourne

Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Science

The Equina Standing CT Scanner is the first of its kind to be installed in Australia.

Racing Victoria commissioned the University of Melbourne to arrange for the installation of the scanner at their Werribee Equine Centre.

The scanner was required to detect lameness and stress fractures in legs of horses competing in the Spring racing carnival

Manufactured in the USA the work program required Merat Architects to undertake detailed and regular communication with the supply company.

After a tight program of design and construction (10 weeks) the scanner arrived and was installed and commissioned with no changes necessary to the building works.
