The diagnostic imaging department work closely alongside primary service clinicians, with specific and significant input to radiography, nuclear scintigraphy, and MRI.
Ultrasonography utilises high frequency sound waves to image internal body structures in real time.
Digital radiography allows us to obtain high quality x-rays which are assessed on high-resolution computer screens.
Scintigraphy (bone scanning) is a diagnostic imaging technique which is very sensitive to changes in bone turn-over.
A computed tomography service is coming soon (proposed to be up and running in Spring/Summer 2009).
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows us to image soft tissue structures such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage within the equine foot.
