Vet Rocket recently broke new ground for mobile veterinary X-Ray when the Smithsonian National Zoo lent their Vet Rocket X1 to Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Museum to scan a truly unique “patient” – the original model of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise.
From the Smithsonian National Zoo Facebook post:
“Star date: January 21st. 2015. Zoo veterinary technicians Peter Flowers and Marilyn Small assisted their colleagues at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Museum. Their mission? To scan a television icon: the Starship Enterprise! Veterinary technicians used the Zoo’s high-powered portable radiograph machine, which normally is used to take detailed digital images of animals during exams. But on Wednesday, it gave Smithsonian staff a peek inside the Enterprise. The digital radiographs will help museum specialists learn more about the icon’s construction as they work to restore the model.”
