NeedleView represents a new service offering for your practice.


Because the scope is micro-invasive, you can access joints and spaces you never could before…opening up a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities.

NeedleView helps you educate your clients and lets them track with your clinical reasoning and recommendations.


When your clients can see exactly what you saw in your examination, their innate trust — and their compliance — naturally increase. And since NeedleView images are in full color and high resolution, your clients will intuitively “get” what you show them in a way they rarely can with images from x-ray, ultrasound, or MRI.

NeedleView sets your practice apart from your competitors.


Without doubt, there’s a “wow factor” associated with the needleoscopy modality and Biovision’s NeedleView arthroscope technology. Not only will your clients and prospective clients perceive your practice as progressive and innovative, they will appreciate how NeedleView benefits their animal — less pain, less risk of infection, and faster recovery, just to name a few.
