"The NEXT DR system from SOUND® is the go-to system for image acquisition speed, image quality, and efficient workflow. The image quality on thick body parts is outstanding, and the large display is great for ensuring you have the image you want the first time."

James P. Morehead, DVM

“Working with SOUND® is not just buying a product, it’s really an experience, an all encompassing thing. In every respect SOUND® has been great. The image quality is so good on the NEXT Equine DR unit that it actually makes other images from other units look inadequate. We do thousands and thousands of radiographs because we do repository work, so we’ve really tested the unit and had no problems with it, it’s just such a pleasure to use. We have 27 horses to X-Ray today and we’re rolling right through it.”
