Medical imaging allows us to diagnose the exact injury. Depending on the problem, various techniques may be used. Bone lesions are diagnosed by conventional Radiography or CT. This helps us to visualize complex fractures and more discreet and not visible to the radio bone lesions. Equitom has a wide bore CT Scanner for scans under general anaesthesia and a Robot CT Scan to perform scans on the standing horse. Ultrasound and MRI are indicated in suspected cases of soft tissue injuries. MRI is the only technique that allows us to visualize bone edema. Nuclear scintigraphy provides a complete picture of the skeleton of the horse and shows areas of increased bone activity and / or bone inflammation.
