Vetrinarians At Turtle ConservancyLOVELAND, CO- E.I. Medical Imaging (EIMI) has recently sold an Ibex® Pro Portable Ultrasound System to veterinarians at The Turtle Conservancy and the Behler Chelonian Center.  The center was able to purchase the portable ultrasound system due to a generous donation from Patagonia. In addition to the Ibex® Pro Ultrasound system, E.I. Medical Imaging will donate a pair of Insite2® Goggles valued at US$1500.00.    The Turtle Conservancy will be using the Ibex® Pro Portable Ultrasound system in their routine diagnostic medicine, such as making a diagnosis about whether a turtle or tortoise is holding eggs, and it will provide new research evidence to describe the reproductive cycles of some of their most important species, including the critically endangered Ploughshare Tortoise from Madagascar.

“We are honored to have our company partner with the Turtle Conservancy to continue their research and their work in protecting the most endangered turtles and tortoises and their habitats worldwide,” said EIMI President, Chas Maloy.  “We consider it our company’s social responsibility to assist these nonprofits in doing this most important work.”  EIMI is very thankful for the Turtle Conservancy and their continued hard work in saving endangered turtles all over the world.
