Our staff

The diagnostic imaging department work closely alongside primary service clinicians, with specific and significant input to radiography, nuclear scintigraphy, and MRI.

Our staff

Horse ultrasound

Ultrasonography

Ultrasonography utilises high frequency sound waves to image internal body structures in real time.

Ultrasonography

Horse radiography

Radiography

Digital radiography allows us to obtain high quality x-rays which are assessed on high-resolution computer screens.

Radiography

scintigraphy

Scintigraphy

Scintigraphy (bone scanning) is a diagnostic imaging technique which is very sensitive to changes in bone turn-over.

Scintigraphy

Horse CT

Computed tomography (CT)

A computed tomography service is coming soon (proposed to be up and running in Spring/Summer 2009).

CT

MRI machine

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows us to image soft tissue structures such as tendons, ligaments and cartilage within the equine foot.
