The Knowledge Center
SOUND® is dedicated to educating veterinarians on state-the-art technology and business best-practices. Our experience over the last 15 years distributing diagnostic imaging equipment and supporting clinicians throughout that equipment’s life-cycle has taught us enough to be experts in our domain.

As an avenue to share this expertise with the veterinary community, we are continually compiling unbiased, practical resources that cover topics across the full breadth of imaging, diagnostics, and therapeutics. This repository of information is built in the form of easily consumable articles and is organized in an on-demand, searchable platform that we call The Knowledge Center.
